How does this medication work?

Lamisil (generic name: Terbinafine) is an antifungal medication used to treat fungal infections of the skin and nails.
Lamisil comes in several forms, including:

  • Tablets
  • Cream
  • Spray

Tablets: Each round, white/yellow, uncoated tablet is scored on one side. Lamisil 250 contains terbinafine 250 mg.
Cream: Each gram of white, smooth, glossy cream contains terbinafine 10 mg.
Spray: Each gram of clear solution contains terbinafine 10 mg.
It is crucial that you take your medication according to your doctor’s instructions. Continue using Lamisil even if your infection clears up, to prevent it from coming back. If you miss a dose, simply take your dose as soon as you remember. If you don’t remember until it is almost time for your next dose, skip your last dose. Do not double your medication.
