Finasteride no longer bannedFinasteride, the popular hair-loss drug, has been taken off from the banned list of World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA); the drug was also used as a masking agent for other banned substances.

Since the drug can now be easily detected if used to mask banned substances, the WADA decided to take it off since Finasteride is primarily used for slowing the process of hair loss.

Romario, the Brazilian footballer, was banned in 2007 for a period of 120 days though he said that the drug was used for preventing hair loss.
