A) “DHT Inhibitor” like ‘Finasteride(Accepted by FDA)’, Popular brand available in India is Finax(Dr Reddy).
B) Minoxidil 5% (topical solution) mainly for stimulating hair fossils.
C) Ketoconazole-2 % based shampoo for it’s anti fungal properties. it’s DHT or hair stimulation property is not accepted by FDA yet.
D) Supplements or Vitamin / Mineral tablets like ‘Folliderm’ , ‘Keraglomen’ , ‘Perfectil’ or ‘Follihair’  for biotin, selenium, zinc & copper clubbed with zincovit for Vitamin B12, B6, D3, Iron and so on..
Now comes the part which I feel can change the whole game of your hair growth story.
Status of vitamins, minerals and amino acids (kind of vitamins) clubbed with some important enzymes in your body. Deficiency of one or another can change the your hair growth dynamics. Below I have tries to give more info on that.
I Hope someone can advice us to get the test done at a decent Pathology for some reasonable money to figure out the actual deficiency.
Trust me guys its not easy to find a reasonably priced trustworthy Pathology in india, Who can do all these test with reliable results.
People here should learn and read the supplement or medicine contents/compositions to figure out what exactly it contains. For expert info ask their doctors / pharmacist and discuss here.
Listing some common terminology printed on medicines.
Weight/volume (w/v%) and volume/volume (v/v%) basis
EXAMPLE “5% w/v ” means 5 g of the solute dissolved in 100 ml of the solvent.
(q.s.) means On a prescription, as needed or Used as per requirement.
Cobalamin means Vitamin B12 Vitamin B6 is Pyridoxine and Vitamin H is called Biotin or Vitamin B7(see complete list below)
mg= milligram mcg= micrograms g= gram kg= kilogram
1000 microgram = 1 milligram = .001 gram

Now how to search similar (means same composition but different brand or name) and less costly drugs/medicine.
India Specific
India + World (Choose your Country) free login might be required
Tricks how to search faster and with more options and accuracy.
Example: Type in google searchbox: “medguideindia”*”biotin-5 mg”*”copper-3 mg”  And this will get you results for all drugs/medicine matching biotin-5 mg AND copper- 2 mg together in a drug/medicine.
See search Results:*%22biotin-5+mg%22*%22copper-3+mg%22&client=ms-opera-mobile-android&channel=new
And if you Search “medguideindia” “biotin-5 mg” “copper-2 mg” This will get you results for all drugs/medicine matching either biotin-5 mg or copper- 2 mg or both in a medicine.
See Search Results:
Same and few more search tricks can be applied elsewhere on the internet and other sites. I will update some  detailed post on this and will post a link here.Please keep continue checking this page.

Note: Vitamins / Minerals Supplements should be taken earlier, or in the middle of a larger meal. It is also advisable not to lie down right after taking pills. it is better to split it up into smaller doses to not interfere pwith the absorption of other nutrients.
