Most common problems associated with hereditary hair loss are androgenetic alopecia and alopecia areata both of which can be reversed if treated early and correctly. Among other therapeutic agents finasteride and minoxidil are two drugs that have been approved by U.S. FDA. for current treatment of such conditions. Although their mechanisms of action differ, both drugs are shown to be clinically proven with additive effect when used in combination. Future success in treatment of hair loss would require continuing research to develop new therapeutic approaches or judicious use of some otherwise existing drugs with other clinical indications.
