The medicine Biotee plus mostly has vitamins and minerals apart from the component N-acetylcysteine. This component has some side-effects like stomatitis, nausea, vomiting, fever, rhinorrhea, drowsiness, clamminess, chest tightness and bronchoconstriction. Thus it cannot be used in patients with asthma.

The medicine 5% Minokem N has minoxidil and tretinoin. Minoxidil is routinely employed for hair loss and causes minimal side-effects if applied topically. Tretinoin has some side effects topically and should be used with caution.

Revisit your doctor for discussing your options.
