Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

If you mean to say that you have been prescribed Doris F tablets then these tablets contain Folic acid and is usually prescribed for anemia which can be the cause of hair loss. But the exact treatment for alopecia consists of corticosteroids, Minoxidil and Diphencyprone (DPCP). You can talk to your doctor and get these also prescribed.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
