# hi
this is androgenetic alopecia.
it occurs due to sensitivity of the hair follicle to androgens.
and is Constitutional you can't do much about it is progressive with age and vary from person to person .
most of the time it's familial and more inheritance is from the maternal side.

permanent treatment is hair transplantation while the medical treatment which has been given to you is standard treatment.

with medical treatments hair growth remains till the time you continue the treatment the moment you stop the treatment natural progress of hair loss resumes so continue following treatment nothing much is required if you continue this treatment for long..

hairs will grow to a maximum in eight months and of that will remain as such till you continue the treatment after withdrawing the treatment the progress of hair loss will resume .

it is a Cosmetic problem actually but some people are more concerned while others are not so if you are too much concerned continue the medical treatment for go for hair transplantation.

minoxidil 10%twice daily.
tab calcium pantothenate + Vertin tablet once daily for 8 weeks after 8 weeks with progress in the hair growth.
