I am suffering from hair loss. Now I am 50% bald. Some of my friends have regained their hair. My baldness is hereditary. I am also an alcoholic. I need some effective medication for hair regrowth.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have read your query and do understand your concern.
As you have said it is genetic, I am assuming it is male pattern baldness. But, photographic evaluation of the extent and type of hair fall will be needed for better guidance.
Take a nutritious and protein rich diet, such as pulses, milk products and eggs.
Avoid routine application of gels or frequent blow drying of your hair. Use a sulfate free shampoo for your hair twice a week.

Thank you doctor,
I am unable to attach the photos now. In the mean time, I would say that the affected area more on the vertex. I am more curious to know if there are very effective result oriented medicines to regrow hair. I have seen one of my friends who got his hairs back at the age of 44.
Welcome back to icliniq.com.
I am judging by your description and it seems that you have male pattern hair loss.
The most effective treatment is Minoxidil 5% lotion. For example Regain 5% or Hair4U 5% can be applied over the affected area twice daily. It is the drug of choice.
Hair transplant is definitely an excellent long term solution.
You can start with this lotion and tablet and let me know about the improvement after four to five months. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicine with consent.
