Terbinafine (Lamisil) results

Ive been on terbinafine for just about 2 weeks and i think ive noticed some slight results, my fungus infection does NOT go past the cutical so should i notice immediate improvement?

Those who have experience with this, how long before you noticed results?

Re: Terbinafine (Lamisil) results

You should be noticing results any time now; the nail will begin to lose the discoloration, but that is just about all at this point. You really won't notice much growth since the toenails grow at a much slower rate than fingernails. It can take up to a year for the nail to totally replace itself with a healthy, attached nail plate from the cuticle to the free edge. 2 weeks isn't enough time to notice much change other than coloration at the point where the nail is detached.

Re: Terbinafine (Lamisil) results

I took Lamisil for 6 months starting December 2006. I have had great results. However, the big toenail on my right foot still has discolored nail on the end because toenails grow SOOOOOOOO slow. All the other toenails have grown out. That one was the worst but it is mostly pink now. Give it time.

Some infections are worse than others and if your physician sees that the infection is not totally gone when the medicaiton is gone, he may prescribe it again. Most infections take two prescriptions.

Re: Terbinafine (Lamisil) results

i was told that the medication should continue to work in your system for up 30 weeks after the last pill and usually continues the process till it is 100% healed.
