Lamisil (terbinafine hydrochloride) is an antifungal medication which, in tablet form, is primarily used to eradicate fungal infections of the scalp, fingernails, or toenails.

Rarely Lamisil may be used to treat infections in other parts of the body, such as the groin or feet, when topical solutions fail, but generally topical medications are preferred for those areas, such as:

Topical applications are typically just as effective on the skin as taking the medication in tablet form, but carry less risk of serious side effects. However for scalp or nail infections, taking Lamisil orally proves most effective.

Eliminating Fungal Infections

Fungal infections of the nails are, unfortunately, very common. Untreated infections not only look bad, but can be painful, can lead to more serious infections, and may spread to other parts of the body. Infections of the scalp are less common, but can lead to unsightly wounds, permanent scarring and hair loss.

Hair and nails contain a large amount of the protein keratin, which is what invasive fungi thrive on. When taken orally, the terbinafine hydrochloride in Lamisil accumulates in exactly those areas. This makes it a very effective tool in combating fungal infections of the scalp and nails.

Treatment with Lamisil is very similar regardless of where the infection is found:

  • Take one 250 mg tablet each day, with a glass of fluid
  • It may be taken with our without food; eating may ease nausea
  • Ideally tablets are taken at the same time each day to keep levels of the drug consistent in the body
  • Missed doses should be taken as soon as remembered, or skipped if it's near time for the next dose
  • Take all tablets as prescribed even if the condition improves; the fungus might not be completely eradicated
  • Do not take more than 1 pill per day; there is no benefit, but increased risk of adverse reactions

Duration of treatment will vary by the location of the infection:

  • Scalp - 4 weeks
  • Fingernails - 6 weeks
  • Toenails - 12 weeks

It may take several weeks or even a few months to see significant improvement. This is normal, due to the relatively slow rate at which hair, fingernails and toenails grow, unlike skin, which usually clears up fairly quickly.

In addition to Lamisil treatment, it's a good idea to frequently wash shoes, clothing and bedding that has come into contact with infected areas, and sterilize or replace combs, brushes or other instruments which have contacted infected scalps, until the infection is completely cleared up.

Important Warnings

Most side effects resulting from Lamisil are mild, and often clear up with continued treatment. They are, in order of frequency:

  • Headache
  • Stomach upset/nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Flatulence

Other side effect are much more rare, but also much more serious; if encountered, treatment should stop immediately and a doctor be consulted:

  • Smell or taste disturbances, including loss of smell or taste
  • Any symptoms of liver damage; clay-colored stools, dark urine, severe itching, jaundice
  • Depression or unusual mood changes
  • Photosensitivity; skin sores, blisters, peeling or rashes that worsen in sunlight
  • Altered immune system function; particularly exacerbation of cutaneous and systemic lupus erythematosus

It is common for a doctor to run tests on liver function prior to prescribing this medication, and regular checkups, including blood tests, are advisable to monitor for developing adverse reactions.

Women who are pregnant or breast-feeding should avoid use of this product altogether; effects on unborn babies or infants are unknown, but since there's no reason treatment can't be delayed it's generally considered to not be worth the risk.

Purpose


For the treatment of fungal skin conditions such as athletes foot, jock itch, ringworm, pityriasis and candida skin infections.

General Lamisil Information

Lamisil, a product of Novartis Pharmaceuticals, is a tried and tested formula for the effective treatment of nail (fingernail as well as toe nail) fungus infection. It has built a reputation as one of the most powerful treatments for nail fungus, which thrives beneath the nail where there is plenty of blood supply. Since nail fungus infection can worsen or even infect the other nails if left untreated, timely use of Lamisil is highly recommended.

Lamisil tablets are made up of the synthetic allylamine antifungal compound terbinafine hydrochloride. Like with the use of antibiotics, ensure that the entire course of the medicine is completed even if there is an apparent improvement in the condition. This is because while the outwardly appearance of the nail and the symptoms may show improvement, it takes time for the actual infection to heal. Stopping the medicine prematurely can lead to a relapse, which can turn out to be very severe.

While the dosage may vary depending on the medical history of a patient and the state of the infection, the general recommended dosage for Lamisil is:

  • Treatment of fingernail onychomycosis: one tablet of 250mg once a day for a period of 6 weeks

  • Treatment of toenail onychomycosis: One Lamisil tablet of 250mg once a day for a period of 12 weeks.

Each dose of Lamisil must be taken with a glass of water. These tablets must be taken regularly as recommended, as the most effective way of treating the fungal infection is to keep a constant supply of Lamisil in the blood stream. However, in the event of missing a dose on any given day during the treatment, do not take a double dose.

Lamisil tablets must be stored at a temperature of 25oC in an air tight container away from moisture and heat. Lamisil must also be kept out of reach of children and pets.


Potential side effects of Lamisil

Lamisil is contraindicated in patients with severe liver damage; therefore, it is essential to take necessary precautions, particularly when one has had a past history of liver problems. The best recourse in such a scenario is to seek medical advice. In some rare cases, the improper use of Lamisil can cause liver damage that can be fatal.

 

If, after starting the use of Lamisil, any of the below mentioned symptoms are noticed, a doctor should be contacted immediately as it could be a sign of some liver problems.

  • Loss of appetite

  • Yellow skin or eyes and dark urine

  • Nausea

  • Vomiting

  • Fatigue

  • Abdominal pain

Patients with renal impairment are also advised to avoid taking Lamisil. Moreover, refrain from alcohol or restrict its use as a combination of the drug with alcohol can affect the liver.

Lamisil DermGel can be used to treat tinea infections of the skin such as athletes foot, "jock itch" and ringworm. It is also useful for treating Pityriasis versicolor, a superficial fungus infection of the skin. Active Ingredient Terbinafine 10mg/g Dosage Apply a sufficient amount of Lamisil DermGel to the affected area once a day for 1 week. Skin should be thoroughly washed and dryed before applying Lamisil DermGel to the skin. Warning For external use only. Do not use on nails or scalp, in or near the mouth or the eyes or for vaginal yeast infections. When using this product do not get into the eyes. If eye contact occurs, rinse thoroughly with water. Stop use and ask a doctor if too much irritation occurs or gets worse. Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed, get medical help or contact a poison control center right away. Do not use if seal on tube is broken or is not visible.

Lamisil Derm Gel (terbinafine) is used to treat fungal skin infections such as ringworm, jock itch and athlete's foot. The gel provides instant soothing relief and clears up most fungal infections in just a week.

For fungal infections of the fingernails, toenails and scalp, Lamisil Tablets are more effective. Lamisil Derm Gel should not be used directly on mucous membranes, open wounds or on skin with a viral or bacterial infection.

The Lamisil Difference

There are a lot of topical antifungal treatments on the market, and while they all work, some are definitely better than others. The active ingredient in Lamisil Derm Gel, terbinafine, is one of the fastest-acting topical antifungal agents available. Unlike most creams or gels, which need to be applied two or more times per day for several weeks, terbinafine clears up most fungal infections in just one week with only one application per day.

Among topical terbinafine products, Lamisil Derm Gel stands out in quality. It is easily applied even to very hairy areas, such as the groin, and the gel dries quickly without leaving a greasy or oily residue behind. Once applied, Lamisil Derm Gel rapidly provides soothing, cooling relief from itchiness and other irritations associated with fungal infections.

Topical application of antifungal medications are preferred whenever possible due to the decreased risk of serious side effects. Side effects associated with terbinafine creams or gels are mild itching, burning or tingling at the application site. These symptoms typically pass very quickly and are only cause for concern if severe or persistent.

Using Lamisil Derm Gel

Lamisil Derm Gel is easy and convenient to use, but some care should be taken to prevent reinfection. Anything that comes into contact with infected skin can reintroduce the infection; clothing, towels, washcloths, bedding, nail clippers and any other items that may have contacted infected skin should be cleaned or disposed of after contact. The infection can also be spread to others if they come into contact with contaminated items.

Skin should be clean and dry before administering Lamisil Derm Gel:

  • Apply a layer of the gel to affected area, extending a short way onto surrounding healthy skin.
  • Repeat treatment daily for at least one week, up to four weeks if needed.
  • Treatment should continue for several days after all symptoms are gone to prevent reinfection.

Relief from symptoms should begin just moments after application. The infection should begin to noticeably clear up after a day or two of use, and in most cases are completely gone within a week. Stubborn infections may take longer, but as long as some improvement is evident treatment may continue for up to four weeks. If no improvement is noticed after several days of use, or if the condition worsens during treatment, discontinue use and speak with a doctor about alternative options.

Precautions Before Use

The vast majority of patients can use Lamisil Derm Gel without any problems. However, there are some scenarios in which extra caution should be used to prevent adverse reactions; speak with a doctor before using this product if:

  • Any other antifungal treatments are being used
  • Any prescription medications are being taken
  • Any major medical conditions are present
  • The patient is under 12 years of age
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding

Though a very safe product when used topically, the gel can be toxic if ingested. If children or pets consume Lamisil Derm Gel it should be treated as a medical emergency.
