What is terbinafine? Terbinafine, present as terbinafine hydrochloride when marketed under the brand name Lamisil, is an antifungal medication. Terbinafine is used in the treatment of fingernail onychomycosis and toenail onychomycosis (i.e. toenail fungus treatment). Terbinafine 250 mg tablets are often administered once daily for six to twelve weeks when used in treating these types of infections. Terbinafine is thought to work by impairing sterol synthesis in fungi and increasing the membrane permeability. Terbinafine cream is sometimes also utilized in managing ringworm.
Terbinafine – Side Effects
Terbinafine can cause side effects just like other medications. Side effects from terbinafine hydrochloride use include, but are not limited to, headache, diarrhea, rash, dyspepsia, liver abnormalities, smell and taste disturbances, flatulence and itching. Terbinafine can also potentiate the effects of caffeine when used. Anyone with a hypersensitivity or allergy to terbinafine should not use the medication. People with liver disease should not use terbinafine or Lamisil. Terbinafine and alcohol should not be used at the same time. It is recommended that all people planning on taking terbinafine discuss possible side effects with their pharmacist and medical provider before use.
