pharmachologic effect


  • Terbinafine is a drug intended for the treatment of fungal diseases. It has activity to all known fungal agents that affect the human body. The therapeutic effect is a destructive action directed at the cell membrane of the fungal cell. The drug has the property to slow the flow of the enzymatic reaction of squalene oxidase, interfering with the normal functioning of the cell membrane.

  • Dmitry :

    8 nails were affected.
    5 months I drank Terbinafine one tablet per day and one more month each tablet every other day. Healthy nails began to grow and after 4 months all the nails were healthy.
    In total, I took Terbinafine for half a year and by the 10th month from the start of treatment all the fingernails were healthy.

  • Tatyana :

    Only yesterday, I started treatment, all the nails on my legs were affected, and one nail on my arm. The fungus was old, 20 years old already. I will try to inform you how the treatment is taking place. The doctor prescribed Terbinafine for a pill a day, for a course of three months, for now. Plus drops Nitrofungin, and Terbinafine ointment for the feet.

    • Tatyana :

      Write how your treatment moves. And then we have a fungus for 20 years already. And they treated the doctors themselves, but complete healing did not happen. Now everything is abandoned, but I really want to recover.

      • Vyacheslav :

        I'm 59 years old now! The fungus has been (on the feet and on the toenails) from the moment of service in the SA (1976-1978) !!! In 2014, he began a course of treatment in June, 1 tablet for half a year. Cured !!! In the New - 2015 I set foot with clean feet and nails !!!

  • Igor :

    Starting to drink from today, the nail on the foot, on the thumb, then I will write how the treatment went.

  • Madi :

    I don’t visit the pool, but I caught this infection. I don’t know what to do with the treatment, the exoderil did not help, 4 bottles already spent the fungus not running and one toe was struck, there are many tips in interest but which gives effect

    • Doc :


      Such options are possible - you have a rare form, against which the drug was ineffective. Very low probability, but this is possible.

      Either the treatment was carried out not quite as required by the instruction, if you skip a day or two, then all treatment can go for a smack.

      Well, in the end, counterfeit drugstores are not uncommon, choose a federal network of pharmacies, where the probability of running into a fake is lower.

      Try antifungal varnish. You can add pills, terbinafine need to take 250 mg once a day for 6 to 12 weeks and do it better under the supervision of a doctor so that he can determine the exact duration of treatment and write a prescription. Almost all prescription pills are antifungal.

  • inna :

    I have been taking Terbinafine pills and cream for 9 weeks, there are no positive results. I had allergies — a rash and itching all over my body. What do you tell me?

    • Doc :


      Where is the fungus located? The diagnosis was made by the doctor or themselves?

      For allergies, use any antihistamine, Suprastin, Claritin, Loratadin .., there are a lot of them in any pharmacy.

  • Sergey :

    Hello! I have been taking pills for two months already, the effect is positive, but I didn’t feel the taste of food, what should I do?

    • Doc :


      You should consult your doctor and fully describe the treatment so that it adjusts the regimen.

      Usually, in the case of nail fungus, tablets are prescribed courses, because they tend to accumulate in the nail plate, and the maximum recommended duration of administration is only 3 months.
