    TLDR Minoxidil is the only FDA-approved topical drug for treating male or female pattern hair loss, and other medications like finasteride and dutasteride can also increase hair growth.
    This document provides an update on treatment options for androgenetic alopecia (AGA), also known as male or female pattern hair loss. It discusses various medications and therapies that have been studied for their effectiveness in treating AGA, including cyproterone acetate, finasteride, dutasteride, spironolactone, and flutamide. The document concludes that minoxidil is the only topical drug approved by the FDA for treating AGA, and it has been shown to be effective in both men and women. Other medications, such as finasteride and dutasteride, have also been found to be effective in increasing hair growth. However, it is important to note that the document is from 2016, so more recent research may have been conducted since then.
