Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am having hair loss problem and now it is in starting stage. I have consulted a doctor for this. He suggested Minoxidil and Finax. I would like to get a second opinion from you.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • I am need of few important details regarding your hair fall.
    • What is your age? Do you have any dandruff?
      • If you are young and having hair loss without any dandruff then the prescribed treatment is very correct for you.
        • Minoxidil is a vasodilator which increases blood supply to the hair roots and helps in hair growth whereas Finax is Finasteride.
          • These medications will show effect when using for 1 to 2 months, provided that you must use it compliantly without missing any doses. These are very effective medications.
            • If you have dandruff then please get treated your dandruff which is most commonly by fungal infection of scalp.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
