What is Terbinafine (Generic Lamisil) and what are its uses ?

Lamisil (Terbinafine) is a medication used to treat infections caused by certain types of fungus.

Lamisil is most commonly used for skin and nail infections.

How does Terbinafine (Generic Lamisil) Works (Mechanism) ?

Lamisil contains the active ingredient terbinafine hydrochloride, which is an antifungal medicine. Lamisil kills fungi by interfering with their cell membranes.

Lamisil works by stopping fungi from producing a substance called ergosterol, which is an essential component of fungal cell membranes. The disruption in production of ergosterol disrupts the cell membrane and causes holes to appear.

The cell membranes of fungi are vital for their survival. They keep unwanted substances from entering the cells and stop the contents of the cells from leaking out. As Lamisil causes holes to appear in the cell membranes, essential constituents of the fungal cells can leak out. This kills the fungi and hence clears up the infection. 

Dosage: How should you take Terbinafine (Generic Lamisil) ?

Lamisil tablets are taken orally.

You can take the Lamisil tablets with food. If Lamisil upsets your stomach it may help to take it with food. Take your doses at regular intervals. Do not use Lamisil more often than directed. Use your doses at regular intervals. Finish the full course prescribed by your prescriber or health care professional even if you think your condition is better.
