Hi Sujata,

Thanks for writing in.

You have been given correct treatment.
You should continue the medication for at least 3 to 6 months for visible results.

Combit contains the vitamins and minerals in right proportion for hair growth.
If you wish to take nutradyn and shelcal with it you can continue it along with this treatment .

Only topisal 6 is not advisable as 6% salycylic acid may irritate the scalp.Beside folifast already contains salycylic acid so 2 preparations of salicylic are not advisable.

You can use all other preparations except topisal 6.

Hope this helps.
