Hello dear,

VB7 FORTE is a multivitamin & multi mineral supplement.
Though, it does not directly cause hair growth, but it helps in strengthening the hair roots/follicles and indirectly prevent hair loss.

Hair fall occurs due to multifactorial causes such as:
1. Environmental factors
2. Stress
3. Deficiency of certain minerals, vitamins & amino acids in diet. e.g. Iron, zinc, Vit B complex, lysine.
4. Hormonal factors. e.g. Thyroxine
5. Any incidence of surgery, shock, etc.

Management includes:
1. Treating the underlying cause
2. Avoidance of stress
3. Dietary modifications
4. Minoxidil solution to be applied locally to stimulate the hair follicles
5. Multivitamin & multi mineral supplementation- as already advised by your Doctor

But these medications have to be used regularly under the guidance of a Dermatologist, as hair loss tends to return on stoppage of these medications.

And before initiation of these medications, the problem of scalp infection should be addressed.
So, the medication given by your doctor is correct.
Kindly continue them as advised.

There is no need to worry.
Your hairs will grow back again.

Wishing you a Good Health.
Thanks & take care.
