Nizoral Question

Recommended Posts

ive not used nizoral for ages and have decided to use it again

been in to to boots to get some today. couldnt find it anywere

boots web site have but it says it is classed as a med

does that mean you cant buy it off the shelf anymore.

i was pushed for time so didnt have time to ask at the med counter

just been to boots and asked for it.

its a new boots store so everything in different places

it was nowhere near the ordinary shampoos

i noticed boots do their own 2% version of nizoral is it as good

its about £1.50 cheaper

The 2% Nizoral version is normally behind the prescriptions counter at Boots, so you have to ask for it.

 

The 1% Nizorelle version, can normally be bought off the shelf..

Hmmm. I'm a bit confused too. I just went to Boots today and bought 'Nizorelle' (a silver packet - 100ml).

 

I didn't realise there were different strengths - the one I bought doesn't have a percentage on it, it just lists Ketoconazole as one of the ingredients

 

Next time I'm there I'll have a look behind the counter

in our local boots nizorelle is near the normal everyday shampoos

nizoral is with the medicated medicinal shampoos.

 

presumably nizoral is stronger then - does that mean it may be more effective against MPB?

yep, nizoral is 2%, nizorelle 1%. the 2% version most people say is more effective (also backed up by studies - do a search on this forum)

 

cheers
