Hey

Thanks for writing to EHF!


Minokem 5% is an Indian origin drug containing Minoxdil. for your questions it appears you are a female so if you are really a female than let me tell you that it is a drug for male pattern hair fall (although also work for female but more precisely it is for men) . you need some multivitamins. I suggest you to visit some good doctor probably a dermatologist who can prescribe you a good multivitamin. but if you are male then yes this is a good drug for you and it will take like a month to show its effect. and same goes for multivitamin.

I also suggest you to give a read to our site Health center related to hair loss

Hope it helped
