Also, Finasteride is used in hair loss (androgenic alopecia) only by men. The treatment slows down further hair loss and provides about a 30% improvement in hair loss after six months of treatment, the effectiveness is maintained only as long as it is taken by the drug. Finasteride was also tested for hair loss in women, but the results were not the best.
