Hang on, hair-impaired: Help is on the way. A month ago we told you about Propecia, a toned-down prostate regimen that works like Rogaine-in-a-pill, regrowing hair or at least halting the exodus on some 86 percent of male pates.

The FDA announced Monday that it has approved the drug, which should now be available by prescription from mid-January. Side effects still include impotence and decreased libido. But it's cheaper than a red convertible.
