Is it advised to apply hair oil and tugain together ?

Thinning of Hair on the right side and Hair Fall ( Premature Balding). Hi, I am a 21 year old MALE student Suffering from a peculiar hairloss problem. I am a right-hander. As a college student staying away from home my sleep routine are inconsistent. I have the habit of applying hair oil every alternate day. My scalp is clean and free from dandruff but, the hair pattern above my right ear is very thin (becoming) and hair fall is more prominent here. But, Onto my left portion of the scalp and the top portion of the scalp my hair density is good and hair fall is considerably less. After consulting a doctor i was suggested to use 1 ml of TUGAIN Solution 5 Minoxidil Topical sol USP 5 w/v) daily. I have 2 queries 1.) As a doctor what would u suggest me ? 2.) Can both hair oil and Tugain be applied together, (if not atleast on the different portions of the scalp as 1ml is not sufficient for the entire scalp.)? Thank you.
