It is possible to have shedding from minoxidil. However it almost always reverses with time. Especially after PRP treatment.

Minoxidil hair shedding can occur for a few weeks until all the hair cycles. PRP should speed the cycling. Give it 3 to 4 months.The shedding should be evaluated  by your hair expert for other possible etiology especially.Good luck.
