Lamisil

(Generic)
Lamisil is a prescription antifungal intended for oral administration. It's used for fighting fungal infections affecting fingernails and toenails. This drug needs to be taken for at least a few weeks for the results to become obvious and for your immune system to be able to cope with the infection successfully.

Lamisil is an antibiotic is the class of antifungals. It's primarily intended for the treatment of infections caused by fungus. Lamisil's active ingredient terbinafine hydrochloride works by killing fungal cells, that way relieving the symptoms and clearing the area affected. Lamisil is most often prescribed at the dose of 250 mg. Before you buy Lamisil online or get it at your local pharmacy, however, you need to find out if any medical conditions you have or drugs you are taking will affect the success of your treatment in any way. You should report to your doctor the fact of having lupus, psoriasis or any other autoimmune disorder, as well as liver or kidney disease. Interactions between terbinafine hydrochloride 250 mg and other drugs you may be taking are also possible, especially SSRI antidepressants, cyclosporine, rifampin, blood thinners, beta-blockers, tricyclic antidepressants, other antifungals and MAO inhibitors. You should be aware of that possibility and talk to your doctor or pharmacist about the options you have to avoid those interactions to benefit from both terbinafine hydrochloride 250 mg and the other drug. There is a chance your symptoms get better before the infection has been completely treated. You should continue taking Lamisil anyway in the exact way directed to make sure the infection is completely cured and a relapse will not occur. You may need to see your doctor often for blood and liver tests, to ensure safe and efficient treatment with Lamisil.

Side Effects

Lamisil is very safe and well-tolerated, but a few percent of patients may develop one or several minor side effects anyway. You will need to let your doctor know if you get body aches, fever, swollen glands or flu symptoms. At the same time, mild side effects are more likely and include mild nausea, headache, mild skin rash, diarrhea, gas and upset stomach. You can continue with your treatment if you get any mild side effects, as they are usually short-lived and insignificant.
