    TLDR Low-dose finasteride effectively reduces hirsutism without serious side-effects.
    The study evaluated the effectiveness of low-dose (2.5 mg/day) finasteride in treating hirsutism in women. The study involved 29 patients who received 2.5 mg finasteride once a day over a period of 12 months. The hirsutism score decreased significantly from a mean of 18.4 ± 4.6 to 8.4 ± 4.2 during the study, with a 55.7 ± 14.9% reduction in hirsutism score at 12 months. No significant differences in hormone levels or serious side-effects were observed during the treatment. The study concluded that low-dose finasteride is a cost-effective and well-tolerated therapeutic agent that can be used in place of high-dose finasteride in the treatment of hirsutism.
