I am about to take my last dose of Terbinafine HCL. I will be attending a party that weekend, how soon after last dose will I be able to have alcohol?

You're right that...: ...neither alcohol nor terbinafine, especially when combined, are the liver's best friend. Terbinafine should be completely cleared from your system about 8 days after the last dose. You should be okay having a couple of drinks at this party, but the Dr. Mom in me wants to remind you that it's never safe to get wasted. Otherwise, have a good time! ...Read more

How soon after finishing your last terbinafine pill is it safe to start drinking alcohol again?

How soon after finishing your last terbinafine pill is it safe to start drinking alcohol again?

Good question: Terbinafine can cause chemical hepatitis & has a 36 hour half life. That means it takes about five days to clear your liver of all terbinafine. Alcohol is a known hepatotoxic substance. Although no clear contraindications are in the package insert for terbinafine, it seems prudent to forgo alcohol or Acetaminophen for a week after last dose of terbinafine to be safe. ...Read more

Does Lamisil (terbinafine) create rashes on body? i have been taking it after I came back from ecuador. I also take seroquel and sometimes alcohol

Rash: It would be rash to try and diagnose a cutaneous eruption without seeing it. Yours sounds like it may either be a contact dermatitis or an allergic reaction, but there are several diseases endemic to South America which can produce lesions of this nature. Would strongly suggest that you find an infectious diseases expert to see you. Bring along a full list of all sites of travel, contacts, animals ...Read more
