While men were using this drug during the trial phase they have noticed that the hairs on their heads begin to regrow. The company then decided to get this medication approved to treat baldness in men. This was one of the first pills that were used to treat hair loss. The FDA approved this medication in 1997 to treat male pattern baldness and was the first drug that has been used to help men regrow their hair. This medication is able to redude DHT levels in the body up to 60 percent when used on a daily basis. DHT has been known to cause the hair follicles to shrink which leads to baldness.

Minoxidil

Researchers then discovered that this product was also able to help men regrow hair. This treatment can also be applied using a topical application to the scalp to help the hair grow. This type of hair loss treatment is known as a growth stimulant.

Antiandrogens
