    Default Nizoral questions

    Right..I am trying to buy some Nizoral shampoo......

    I am a bit confused...I understand there is a 1% and a 2%, is there also just a standard Nizoral too?......

    I have came across 'Nizoral Dandruff Shampoo' is this just a standard version?

    To be honest I have no idea what the 1 / 2 % means, 1 / 2% of what?

    When I google 'Nizoral 1%' I do not get many options, not much comes up. I am after the 1% version. I am from UK. Can anyone help for a online source?

    If you're just starting to use Nizoral, try the 1% first. If you take a read on Nizoral related topics here (or in other forums), you'll read about how 1% and 2% doesn't make that much difference but.... to each his own. Might be different to you. Personally, 1% is fine.

    It refers to the percentage of the active ingredient that is in the shampoo. Regular Nizoral has 2% Ketoconazole in it. The 2% version is by prescription only here in the States. The 1% version has 1% Ketoconazole in it. The 1% version is called Nizoral A-D here in the States and it is available over the counter without a prescription.

    E-bay and Amazon grossly over charge for Nizoral A-D. I have no idea why. Here in the States Nizoral A-D is available in most pharmacies for a lot less than it is on e-bay or Amazon.

    On those days that you use Nizoral (either version), it is a good idea to also use a good quality moisturizing conditioner. I donít know what is available in the U.K., but if Aveeno's "Nourish+ Moisturize" conditioner is available to you, give that a try. The bottle looks like this:

    Take care,

    I got the 1%.

    Currently got these going:

    Per day:

    Propecia 0.5mg tablet (1mg tablets cut in half)
    Minoxidil One application
    Toco-8 scoop

    Once a week.


    Almost a week into my programme will possibly increase the doses in a week or 2.

    Not expecting much, it will be a miracle to me if I see any improvement after 6 or so months.
