Hi..Sneha.. The excessive growth of hair on the chin is due to increased level of the androgen hormone in the body.. the tablet prescribed by the doctor is anti androgen, which will inhibit the androgen secretion..., you must continue the same medicines... once the hormone levels come to normal, the hair growth will decrease and then stop.. this is a long time treatment takes few months...

Take care..
