Lamisil Medication

Healthcare providers typically recommend Lamisil® (terbinafine hydrochloride) tablets for the treatment of nail fungus -- both toenail and fingernail fungus. Recently, an oral granule form was approved for the treatment of tinea capitis (also known as ringworm of the scalp), which is another kind of fungal infection.
 
This drug works by either slowing down the growth of the fungus causing the infection or killing it altogether. Prior to taking Lamisil, review the safety and treatment information with your healthcare provider or pharmacist. Most people have no problems with this medicine, but side effects are possible. In addition, keep in mind that it can take weeks -- even months -- to see the full effects.
