Abstract: Therapy of androgen excess should not only confer cosmetic benefit, but also improve long-term markers of endocrine-metabolic and cardiovascular health. Here we report on our pilot experience with a low-dose polytherapy for 30 months. DESIGN, PATIENTS, INTERVENTION: Unblinded extension (24-30 months) of a double-placebo study exploring low-dose polytherapy over 24 months. Between 24 and 30 months, women with hyperinsulinemic androgen excess (N = 36; mean age: 19.4 year; BMI: 23.7 kg/m(2)) received metformin (850 mg/day), flutamide (62.5 mg/day), pioglitazone (7.5 mg/day), ethinylestradiol (20 μg/day) plus drospirenone (3 mg/day) for 24/28 days.
