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).
