Question Lamisil and hair loss

Hi all. My doctor has put me on Lamisil for a pretty nasty toenail infection on both feet. I have read that some people have experienced hair loss while on this medication. I am curious what percentage of users experience hair loss and if it is reversible once the medication is stopped.

Anyone have experience loosing hair while on this medication. And how long did it take for it to grow back in? I guess I am OK if I loose some hair during treatment, but only if it grows back over time.

I've been on it for a week and the only negative effects are occasional headaches, so I take an Advil at the same time which helps. Also, it has caused terrible insommina and I can't get to sleep. Perhaps I will stop taking it at night and try dosing in the morning instead.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Lamisil and hair loss

Hi there!

I've been taking Lamisil for 5 weeks and so far so good. I take mine in the morning so sleep is not a problem at night. I haven't noticed any hair loss but we'll see. I have not had a drink of alcohol since I've been on it, although I am attending a wedding this month. Is it ok to have a couple drinks? I am young and have never had any liver problems.
