Hi ,
Thanks for writing in.

You are taking pulse therapy of steroid for Alopecia areata.
You can take it maximum for 2 years.
You can stop before 2 years if you have hair growth more than 90%.
Steroids can have serious side effects regular monitoring by dermatologist is essential for patient on pulse therapy.You can also take veloxin ,hhsone cream they are effective in alopecia areata.

Consult your dermatologist for continuing the betnesol tablets. They are good only when taken under constant monitoring for side effects.

Hope this helps.
