My dermatologist gave me: minoxidil 5%, vitamin E 200 and ketoconazole medicated shampoo for my hair falling treatment. Need a second opinion.

Hair Loss: Vitamin e and ketocanazole shampoo treat seborrheic dermatitis not hair loss. The treatment of hair loss depends on the cause. Male or female pattern hair loss can be treated with Minoxidil 5% twice a day. For men there is also propecia. For alopecia areata we use kenalog (triamcinolone) injections every four weeks. For telogen effluvium we use B12 shots once a month. ...Read more

I am suffering from hairloss together with an itchy scalp, what can I do to get rid of the itch scalp? I am already taking finasteride and minoxidil.

Over the counter: Selsun ( selenium) shampoo will work quite well as directed- this will certainly help with flaking and itching. I am sure that Nizoral shampoo (ketoconazole) is only available as a prescription- consult your private physician. ...Read more

I have a dry scalp which itches severe after washing hair.I have hair loss too. I'm planning to use 5% Minoxidil.Can I use Tgel and minox together?

I have a dry scalp which itches severe after washing hair.I have hair loss too. I'm planning to use 5% Minoxidil.Can I use Tgel and minox together?

Can use both : T-gel can be used once to twice per week. While Minoxidil must be used twice per day. I can't say if you will have any problems with using them both using that schedule. Of course washing off the Minoxidil every day soon after applying you will not benefit from it even if you are only a washing with water. ...Read more

Isn't the half life of topical minoxidil like 20 hrs.? If so why does it need to be used twice a day?

Levels may vary: Half life generally refers to the amount of time it takes to eliminate 50% of a drug from your system. However, this does not correlate with the amount that is needed to be therapeutically effective. For a given drug, that amount needed to be therapeutically effective may be more than or less than the amount present when 50% has been eliminated.
