Ok, I did my searches on AR and I couldn't find a definite answer,
How often do you guys use this stuff when on cycle? And how do you use it? (do you leave it in for 5 minutes)

I guess it depends on why you are taking it... Nizoral / Ketoconazole is mainly an antifungal, for athlete's foot, ringworm, jock itch, and dandruff. I have heard people talk about taking it for really oily skin too, for some reason the drug slows the production of oils from your sebaceous glands.

Should I use every night by massaging into my scalp and leaving it sitting there for 5 min before washing it out? Is using it more than once a day a bad idea? (Because the bottle recommends 3 times a week but I would assume that using it more frequently would be beneficial if I am on AS)

In the United States 1% is over the counter. I use it about 3-4 days per week. Leave is in for 3-4 minutes.
In a study it was shown as effective as about 2% minoxidil.
It is probably better to use it in combination with 5% minoxidil, or a combination of proscar 1.25 mg daily/5% minoxidil 2 times per day/ nizoral 3-4 times per week.

Thanks scott; yeah in Australia you can buy both the 1% and 2% over the counter - I do plan on running it with 2.5mg proscar ED.
