The investigators propose to conduct a head-to-head, randomized clinical trial to compare the effectiveness of Minoxidil with Spironolactone and Finasteride in treating postmenopausal females with Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA).

Study summary:

Participants diagnosed with AGA will be randomized into one of the two treatment arms outlined below, and will take the assigned treatment for a total duration of 12 months. Medications will be dispensed by a nurse who is blinded to the participants within each treatment group. Global photograph assessment and participant questionnaires at 0, 4, 8 and 12 months will be the primary means to determine improvement in hair loss. Compare the following interventions in treating postmenopausal female AGA: A) Combination 5% Minoxidil and 200mg Spironolactone (Combination Group) B) 5mg Finasteride with placebo topical preparation (Single Group)


Inclusion Criteria: - female - postmenopausal (>60 years old or with total hysterectomy) - diagnosed with androgenetic alopecia - no chemical processing or changes in hair products throughout the study Exclusion Criteria: - men - premenopausal women (<60 or without hysterectomy) - participants allergic to any of the study medications (minoxidil, finasteride, spironolactone) - participants with other co-existing forms of alopecia (traction, alopecia areata, or scarring alopecias) - participants with obstructive uropathy or advanced liver disease - prior hair loss treatment within the last 6 months - hair loss from the chemotherapy or other medication-induced alopecia - Hair loss for greater than 5 years, as medical therapy is unlikely to have much effect at restoring hair follicles inactive for that long of a period.
