But fortunately, many cases appeared where patients show satisfaction and adopt a positive attitude towards the usage of these drugs. Almost 10% to 14% people affirmed its efficacy. Minoxidil, Laser Devices, Finasteride and Corticosteroids are FDA approved treatments for hair loss.

Minoxidil is an FDA approved drug for the stimulation of hair growth but its function is still unknown. The general speculation about its function involves its ability to dilate blood vessels in the scalp which may improve hair follicle function. This drug is injected directly onto the patient’s scalp. A dermatologist may combine minoxidil with another treatment. Like many other drugs, the consequences may prove severe if the warnings are taken for granted. The patient must consult a doctor if he is allergic to any ingredient in minoxidil solution, or if he has blood pressure or any heart problems or if he is taking any prescription or non-prescription medicine, herbal preparation or dietary supplement.

Laser devices include brush, combs and other hand held devices that emit laser light might stimulate hair growth. Because FDA classifies these products as medical devices, the products do not undergo the strict testing procedure applied to drugs, that is why their efficacy is not confirmed.

Finasteride is FDA approved medicine to treat only male pattern baldness. Finasteride is a generic name for the brand name drugs Proscar and Propecia.  Finasteride works by decreasing the amount of a natural body hormone called DHT. Other parts of the body are not affected by finasteride, but the drug is not approved for prostate cancer, so there exists a risk of developing a very serious form of prostate cancer. Its use my prove hazard without doctor’s prescription. About 88% men are satisfied from the pill.

Corticosteroid is a drug which is injected onto the scalp to cease inflammation which happens when a man undergoes Alopecia Oreata. Corticosteroids can be used in many other ways. A patient can apply corticosteroid oil or ointment on the scalp, or may use it with injected steroids, or with other medicines such as minoxidil or rogaine, or he can take it by mouth (orally). The oral consumption of corticosteroids is helpful in the stimulation of hair growth in the same way as the other ways of application work, but it is rarely used because of the side effects of the oral corticosteroids.
