Can Lamisil (terbinafine hydrochloride) give me acne?

Can Lamisil (terbinafine hydrochloride) give me acne?

No: Probably not. In any case, you've had an acne flare; you usually won't find the cause. Start using topical benzoyl peroxide for a few months; if this doesn't clear you, get with your physician.

Earlier I got itching near my thighs.the doctor prescribed me to take terbinafine hydrochloride tablets.But now there is itching and severe swelling i?

See the Dr: Best result from a dermatologist. Itching and swelling WHERE? Trebinafine would be used for tinea cruris. If you have that you almost certainly also have tinea pedis. Now you need a complete reevaluation.

Can I use jock itch on my feet? (Tebinafine) It's probably tinea perdis. Or just use athletes foot? (Terbinafine hydrochloride) sound the same

Can I use jock itch on my feet? (Tebinafine) It's probably tinea perdis. Or just use athletes foot? (Terbinafine hydrochloride) sound the same

Either One Ok to Use: Tinea Pedis, a fungal skin infection: itchy rash between toes/sides of feet, can infect toenails. Same fungus causes Jock Itch. Terbinafine (anti-fungal) used to treat both. Prevention is key. Cleanse feet/between toes daily in soapy water. air dry 15 min. Avoid sweaty feet, wear absorbent socks, change if damp, shoe inserts & foot powder help. See doctor if not resolved after 2 wks therapy.

Can I use a tinea cream (terbinafine hydrochloride 1%) and Vaseline? Vaseline to stop itching and barrier between my skin and clothes, on torso front.

No Problem: I see no problem with using the terbinafine cream along with vaseline ointment. However, I would suggest you apply the terbinafine first, then cover with vaseline. This will allow better treatment of the fungal infection.

Can I do a liver cleanse & gallbladder/gallstone flush while i'm on terbafine hydrochloride?

Can I do a liver cleanse & gallbladder/gallstone flush while i'm on terbafine hydrochloride?

No such thing: Don't believe everything you read, and don't take any supplements, herbs, otc products, or vitamins without a specific recommendation by your doctor. You often hear also about colon flush or bowel cleansing - i had a patient almost die from this. The body mostly takes care of itself, and interfering with that process is dangerous unless under a doctor's management.

I was on a ten day dosage of terbinafine. I took my last pill today. Is it safe to consume alcohol?

Enjoy: That should be fine. If you have no underlying liver disease, there is no problem. Don't overdo it, but a drink or two is fine

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?

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!

I was on terbinafine for two weeks 250mg now I'm Having pain in my sides. is liver damage common with only two weeks of terbinafine? I'm worried. Sometimes I would double a dose if I missed a dose but never had history of liver problems before

See DR: Significant liver toxicity from terbinafine is rare. Your symptoms are probably something else. No harm from missed doses, no need to double dose. Why taking it? How long do you plan to continue? Do not take if you already have active hepatitis.

Antifungal: Lamisil (terbinafine) is antifungal but has poor anti yeast properties. Creams which are more effective for yeast include miconazole, kopeks, ketoconazole, and nystatin. It is also used orally for extensive fungus infection or over a three month period with monitoring for toenail fungus.
