Hello I did my FUE HT 2 months back from Turkety, Now I have been seeing a lot of hair fall and stick to my fingers after minoxidil topical solution application (I apply 5% once a day night application). Before Transplant I had Diffused hair loss and Norwood 6. 

The kind of hair which fall I see are two different types. 

1) Normal hair (Looks like to be my native hair)

2) Thick hair at bottom (Can be transplanted hair) 

On an average at least 50-60 hair I see on my finger tips after minoxidil application, I also see hair loss after hair wash. 

I am kinda confused, what should I do? 

Should I stop applying the topical solution? Not sure but I can be allergic to it? What are your thoughts? 

If I want to consume Oral minoxidil 5mg tablets, then from which type of doctor, should I get the prescription from?

(CVS said Minoxidil requires prescription from a doctor in USA)

I'm sure medications may help but who really knows for sure?  I've never taken any prescriptions for my hair and everything has gone very well.  My first surgery was in 2012.  My wife is a hairdresser and cuts my hair regularly and has seen no change in my hair in the transplanted areas or donor areas.  No telling how much money I've saved in nearly 8 years and just don't like taking what may be unnecessary medications.   I do however respect everyone's personal decision regarding medications.

shedding is normal during the first months of minoxidil treatment.
MN increases anlagen phase but, to work its trick, it will increase telogen (shedding) at the beginning.
