In brief: Several for purpose?
Finsteride blocks many unwanted side-effects of testosterone, by blocking its conversion to 5-dht, which causes baldness (male pattern), prostatic hypertrophy, and excess hair growth elsewhere.
Minoxidil applied topically (rogaine) has a similar topical effect. Spironolactone also is effective!
