    TLDR Different forms of hair loss drug can improve effectiveness.
    A 2007 study analyzed the crystal structures of various forms of finasteride, a drug used for hair loss treatment, and identified different polymorphs and solvates. The study found that solvation had an impact on the crystal structures and that the variations could be utilized to develop better formulations of the drug. The study also highlighted the significance of understanding these structures for developing effective formulations. The findings could have implications for drug development and the pharmaceutical industry.
