    TLDR Spironolactone plus finasteride reduces hirsutism more effectively.
    This study compared the effectiveness and safety of spironolactone alone versus spironolactone plus finasteride in treating hirsutism in women. Both groups showed a significant reduction in hirsutism scores, but the combination therapy resulted in a more significant reduction. The study suggests that combined anti-androgen drugs with different mechanisms of action may be a useful therapy in the management of hirsutism.
