    TLDR Finasteride and minoxidil work best together for hair loss.
    This document is a compilation of reviews and studies on treatments for male pattern hair loss. The most effective options are hormonal treatments like finasteride and minoxidil, which can partially regrow hair and stop the progression of the disease. Non-pharmacologic treatments like platelet-rich plasma and micro-needling can also be considered. Combination therapy with both finasteride and minoxidil is recommended for best results. Other potential treatments include dutasteride, topical finasteride, low-level laser therapy, and bimatoprost-sensitive prostamide receptors, but more research is needed to confirm their effectiveness.
