In brief: Depends on cause.

There are many kinds of hair loss, with many causes, from illnesses to surgical procedures to medications to crash diets to stress.
Once you know the cause you can tailor a treatment plan. Your dermatologist can help you with this. Betamethasone will help with some types of hair loss but not others - so get professional help for this.
