Experience with gris-peg?

Poor: Hello:

gris-peg has fallen out of favor for many good reasons in that we have no good clinical trails that prove this medication can achieve a cure to onychomychosis (nail fungus). If you are receiving this medication, discuss with your doctor alternatives that have a higher level of cure rates such as lamisil (terbinafine).

Was prescribed griseofulvin for tinea pedis and two toenails that seem infected. Says take 3 tablets twice a day, what does that mean? Will it clear off?

Was prescribed griseofulvin for tinea pedis and two toenails that seem infected. Says take 3 tablets twice a day, what does that mean? Will it clear off?

This is a common therapy for the issues mentioned. It will likely do the job but may take a while to change the appearance of your nails. (they grow out slowly) ...Read more
