Diabetologist 's  Response
yes you are on a good medication
the vitamin supplements help you correct any deficiencies
remaining medications works when you still have follicles remaining on the scalp
with mintop you may develop rash so test for sensitivity and then use it
you need to use this for 3 months
but after stopping you may again need to face the same problem
follow few tips
stay cool
do meditation
use a good conditioner
dont spend much time with cell phone and computer
wash your hair regularly
.apply oil at night and the next day wash your hair(because it is better not to go out with oily hair as dust sticks to the hair )
selsun lotion can be helpful to clear dandruff if present ,talk to your doctor about this
.using the same comb after hair wash carries the infection again so remember wash your comb each time you wash your hair

try to avoid hair dyes
stay away from hair styling gels and creams
try to get rid of dandruff first and later concentrate on hair growth

hope i answered your query
feel free to contact me for further queries
thank you
