    TLDR Minoxidil and finasteride combo maintains hair density effectively.
    The study aimed to determine the effectiveness of topical minoxidil fortified with finasteride in maintaining hair density after replacing oral finasteride. The study involved 45 patients, and the results showed that 84.44% of patients maintained their hair density well, and the combination of minoxidil and finasteride was effective in maintaining hair growth. The study suggests that topical medication alone is beneficial in maintaining hair density. The study found that a combination of topical minoxidil and finasteride can be a beneficial treatment strategy to maintain hair density after achieving initial improvement with oral finasteride, thereby obviating the use of oral finasteride indefinitely.
