Citation: Evidence Based Practice 14(5): 14.
Abstract: In normoandrogenic postmenopausal women, finasteride 1 mg/d does not improve hair loss. It also has an adverse event profile similar to placebo during the first year of use. (SOR: B, based on a single RCT.) Finasteride at higher doses has not been studied in RCTs in postmenopausal women.
