    TLDR Low-dose oral minoxidil is being revisited as a promising hair loss treatment.
    The article "What's Old Is New Again" discusses the emergence of new and improved therapies for alopecia disorders, with a focus on the off-label use of low-dose oral minoxidil. This medication, which has been available for years, is being reconsidered as a potentially valuable treatment for hair loss. The article compares low-dose oral minoxidil with topical minoxidil, an FDA-approved treatment for androgenetic alopecia, but one that often suffers from poor adherence. The risks, benefits, and potential side effects of low-dose oral minoxidil are also discussed, along with nursing considerations in the education and care of patients with alopecia disorders.
