Taking Lamisil Properly

General Lamisil Dosage Information

Considerations for people taking Lamisil include the following:
 
  • Lamisil comes in tablet form. It should be taken by mouth once a day. For treating ringworm of the scalp, Lamisil comes in oral granule form (which is also taken by mouth once a day).
     
  • For fingernail fungus or for ringworm of the scalp, Lamisil should be taken for six weeks. For toenail fungus, Lamisil should be taken for 12 weeks.
     
  • Lamisil can be taken with or without food.
     
  • Lamisil oral granules should be sprinkled on a spoonful of non-acidic food, such as pudding or mashed potatoes (but not on applesauce or any fruit-based foods).
     
  • Lamisil should be taken at the same time each day to maintain an even level of the drug in your blood.
     
  • For Lamisil to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Lamisil will not work if you stop taking it.
      
  • If you are unsure about anything related to Lamisil or your Lamisil dosage, talk to your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist. Do not stop taking Lamisil without discussing it first with your healthcare provider.
