Yes combining the two i.e. Minoxidil and finasteride for treating pattern baldness in Men. Minoxidil (brand name Rogaine) slows down hair loss by increasing the flow of blood and nutrients to the hair follicles. Finasteride blocks the hormone causing hair fall and Minoxidil stimulates the hair follicles for new hair growth. When combined with Finasteride, Minoxidil is more effective for hair preservation.
