Yes: Lamisil may produce headaches in patients who have just started the medication. About 13% of patients may develop this side effect. Usually headaches occur at the start of therapy but diminish with subsequent doses of the drug. Pain killers, such as Aspirin or tylenol (acetaminophen) may relieve the pain, but the patient should consult a health care professional first.

Yes: Headache is a possible side-effect associated with lamisil (terbinafine). Consult with your doctor and let them know that you have developed a headache. It may be from the Lamisil (terbinafine) or you may just have a regular headache.
