Shedding From an Unknown Prescription Medication.
In my opinion, need to see your dermatologist again, a family practice physician or a hair restoration physician to determine the cause of the shedding. There are a plethora or reasons as to why your hair had dramatically and it may or may not ave been from the medication.

Thinning Hair -- Rogaine, Propecia, Viviscal, Progesterone, PRPIf you have thinning hair you really need an evaluation to see if it is genetic or from another cause like stress or autoimmune.
