 1  Toe Fungus Horrible disturbing vivid dreams of harming myself and others. I wanted to disappear - SUICIDAL to the point of scared to be in my own skin. Fear took over my life and only when I stopped I slowly got back to normal. This drug is very dangerous - Do Not take this Drug! It messes with your mind. My toe nails got better but then after a few months of taking Lamisil but then the fungus came back. Afterwards, I tried apple cider vinegar and soaked my toes and it helped a little but what worked the most was just drinking lemon in my water everyday and now the fungus is gone! F 60 4 months

 1  Toenail Fungus My previous entry was cut off. Anyone who has taste loss from terbinafine knows that drinking plain water tastes like disgusting seawater. I found that drinking cold carbonated water really took away that salt taste and was actually refreshing. I used a Sodastream machine to make it, only because I already had one. Store bought mineral water might have the same effect. Regardless the saltwater taste will eventually go away on its own. Good luck to all. M 47

History
 4  left and right toenail fungus Many folks seem to have complications with this med. As for me it seems to be working fine. I had very mild mood swings and even the metal taste in mouth for maybe 2 days. Personally in my opinion much of these side effects really depends on the person's mental and physical conditions. I an retired Army, work out every day at home (45 min on stationary bike, Ab scissor and dead weights). This med is doing me well M 52 1 months

 1  Toenail fungus Very bitter/salty taste in mouth. This is an update to my comments from 10/14/13 and 9/18/13. I was on Terbinafine for 10 days when I developed an awful bitter/salty taste in my mouth. This was there 24 hours a day - and really was the most depressing thing I ever went through - nothing would get rid of it and nobody understood what I was going through. I am writing this to give you hope. I thought because I was on the medication such a short time, that the duration of this side effect would be shorter - this was not to be. It took a good 12 weeks for it to even start to get better and about 16 weeks for it to totally go away. I had totally convinced myself that I was going to be one of the few where it was permanent and didn't know how I could live the rest of my life like this. I am so happy it is gone, and I just wanted to give everyone with this side effect some hope. It WILL go away eventually - just hang in there. It is unbelievable to me, how long this drug can stay in your body. F 54 10 days

 1  Toe fungus Nausea, fatigue, bones ache, severe skin rash on leg and face. I started taking this med 14 days ago. The first week I was very nauseas and achy. On the 8 day I developed a patchy rash on my left leg. I did not contribute the rash to terbinafine. On day 14 I woke up and my face was vert itchy and my the end of the day it was covered with a rash. I stop taking the medicine and the rash is still on my leg and all over my face. It's so uncomfortable because it is very itchy and my right eye is a little swollen because of the rash. When will the rash clear up? I started putting hydrocortisone cream on it in hopes it will clear up. I also started taking Benadryl to help with the itching. F 38 14 days

 5  toenail fungus loss of appetite, anorexia, weight loss (yaaayyy!!) I was shocked when i read everybody's reviews and side effects about lamisil. i have had toenail fungus for 7 years and been using Lamisil for about a year on and off. i get my liver and everything checked to make sure im healthy. My fungus is gone, i had no side effects other than loss of appetite and weight loss. well that was the main reason why i started to take lamisil anyway, im 5'4' and started off 107 pounds and got down to 97pounds thanks to lamisil. im not encouraging anyone to use it as a means of weight control but thats why im using it twice a year (with 3 month breaks in between). doesnt cause me any depression. it really increases my energy level so i hit the gym everyday. but everybody is different and reacts differently to drugs. i think its worth the side effects if you wanna be able to wear them open toe high heels on your date. let me know if you have any questions.

 1  Toe nail fungus Mild nausea about two weeks after starting Lamisil which was prescribed by a foot doctor. Thirty days later developed severe chilling one evening...called pharmacist and was told this is NOT a side effect. The information with the drug says it is and to seek medical help. Called my family doctor and he told me to STOP taking it immediately. Nausea and chilling continued so I made an appt. with my doctor. He did the blood work and said my liver was okay. I have been off of Lamisil for two weeks and still have a mild feeling of nausea and a mild chilling feeling. I also have a nervous, anxious feeling under my skin...I had heard this comes with a lot of side effects but now I know...I just want to feel good again! F 67 30 days

 1  Toenail Fungus Hair thinning. Can't taste foods. Foggy thinking. Anxiety I would never recommend this drug! I have fine hair to begin with so, thinning of fine hair was very worrying. I did not notice this til after the 3 mo. was past. Also noticed that I do not taste foods like I used to. Most foods taste bland. I also have noticed dizziness and some anxiety plus mild depression. My Dr. never ordered blood work to be taken while on this medicine and only said not to drink while taking it. Very disappointed that most Dr's do not seem educated on the harmful effects of these drugs, or the face that perhaps they just don't care! F 3 months

 1  finger and toe nail fungus This drug made me so fatigued after taking it for 3 weeks that I could not function. Doctor said it wasn't from the Lamisil, but I stopped it anyways for 2 weeks. 2 weeks later energy returned. Tried drug again for one week and symptoms returned. Extreme fatigue like I had the flu. Achy all over. If you are suffering from nail fungus I have a better solution. I found a lasar place that does lasar hair removal and skin lasaring and their machine also does lasar on the finger nails for nail fungus. I went once a month for 3 months (3x total) and after this just let me nails grow out. 5 months later my nails are free of fungus. totally. Each treatment was $200, but so worth the money!!! Didn't have to take the nasty pills anymore!!! I found the nail lasar place on groupon so check groupon in your area. F 58 5 weeks

 1  nail fungus Lost sex drive. Trouble concentrating. Sex drive disappeared after 4 weeks of taking this stuff. I continued taking it another 3 weeks. At that point I stopped the med and saw my doctor about the lost libido. He did a blood test for testosterone, which came back right in the middle of normal, and advised me to stay off the lamisil. I've been off it for almost 4 weeks and the side effects haven't improved at all. I'm very healthy and in good shape but have zero sex drive now. M 34 7 weeks

 3  Nail Fungus At first, I had no side effects at all. Then, starting the fifth week, I have broken out in these terrible itchy hives all over my body. I was beating my brain and looking all over the internet as to what would cause these hives. I'm not allergic to anything, nor have I ever been. I also went to the ER thinking it was some severe allergic reaction, and they informed me to continue the Lamisil, because that was not the cause. Apparently, it IS. I really want this fungus to clear up. Do the itchy hives subside at all? If so, I will continue it. As far as depression, or bad taste in mouth, I have not had any of that. I might of had a little nausea when I started it, but it also could have been my menstrual cycle. I am in my fifth week now, and only the hives. I hope it doesn't get worse. F 39 35 days

 1  Toenail Fungus Horrible salty/bitter taste in mouth This is an update to my Sept. 18th comment. I have now been off of terbinafine for 7 weeks. Although most days I can taste most foods (although not like I could before), the awful part is when I am not eating, I have the terrible bitter taste in my mouth from the moment I wake up. I am continually eating wintergreen lifesavers and using listerine freshburst strips or chewing gum. There are also certain days when it is so bad, that it does alter the taste of food. Plain water still tastes terrible to me. While everyone else is losing weight, I can't even have that benefit as I am continually eating something trying to get rid of the taste. Starting to get pretty depressed about this and am so worried that this complication will never go away. I have tried zinc supplements, milk thistle and probiotics and the only result I seem to get are stomache problems. Nothing works! F 54 10 days

 1  Toenailfungus (2toes) On Sept 7 2013, I had a metal taste/odd taste in my mouth, especially when eating. When I started this medicine and my doctor said a 3 month course would do, I thought that isn't so bad. He said in 30 days you will need to have blood work to check your liver and kidney functions because of the medicine. When I got the medicine filled and went home and read all the side effects I knew why. When I started having the metal/sour taste I remembered that was a side effect of this medicine. Its now 10/9/13 and I still have the sour/salt taste, plus naucious, indigestion and burping when I eat or drink anything, especially spicey foods. I'm taking omeprazole daily again. I have no taste after 1or 2 bites of food/drink. I've lost 6 pounds so far. My doctor said yesterday in another month if it isn't better to let him know. M 55 47 days

 1  Toenail Fungus Tiredness,easily fatigued, joint pain, anxiety, foggy-mindedness. I never normally take any prescription meds, but my vanity got the better of me and I tried to get shot of my brown nails. I started to feel generally unwell about 10 days ago (after about 6 weeks worth) - it didn't initially cross my mind that it could be the lamisil (see symptoms above) - thought it was probably a latent cold. I've finally stopped taking them today - looking at other people's symptoms I think it was a good decision. I've read that it takes 200 to 400 hours to clear from your body - so hopefully will feel better then. M 45 2 months

 1  Toenail Fungus Mild headache & flu like symptoms (achiness), vivid disturbing dreams, horrible salty/bitter taste in mouth. On the 7th day of taking terbinafine, I woke up with a horrible salty/bitter taste in my mouth. Stayed on medicine for 3 more days and after talking to my doctor, went off of it. Other symptoms went away immediately, but it has been 3 weeks of pure misery with this awful taste in my mouth. Most food tastes terrible, and water is particularly bitter, but every now and then, I find something (like x-cheddar goldfish crackers - go figure) that helps cover this taste up. My doctor and pharmacist said they have never heard of this reaction, yet obviously it is more common then they say when you look at everyone with these problems on the board. I filed a complaint with the FDA for what its worth. I am finding that I am actually getting depressed and feeling panicky that I might never get rid of this side effect. I really believed that after I stopped the medication, that the problem would go away. Wish there was more information on how long it took people to get their taste back. I was only on this 10 days - Can't imagine how bad it would be if I was on longer! F 54 10 days

 3  Toenail fungus (3 nails) Increasing exhaustion as time went on - for most of the three months I took naps during the day to try to deal with it and I was still more and more exhausted. I'm also experiencing major mood swings. After about 6 weeks my hair began to fall out and it is still falling out as the three months are drawing to a close. I also developed severe hayfever-like symptoms even though I have never had allergies before. My eyes are very bloodshot and uncomfortable and my mind constantly feels foggy, as if I had a cold. Runny nose. My nails are starting to look better but I can't decide if it was worth it. Doctors seem not very informed about the side effects of this drug. F 31 3 months

 2  Massive Toenail Fungus Abdominal gas, greasy bowel movements, change in taste I am suffering from a massive toenail fungus. Took Lamisil over 4 years ago and it went away, but within the last year it has come back with a vengeance. I am starting 60 days into the treatment and I have yet to see any new growth in my nails that show the fungus being arrested. My health insurance plan does not pay for the laser treatment, so I hope this works. All 10 of my toes are affected. I don;t understand why I am prone to this disease. M 43 30 days

 5  toe nail fungus absolutely none About 8 months ago I started laser treatments for my toe nail fungus. All ten toes got 6 treatments, one week apart. 30 days later the doctor say let's try another 2 because he sees no improvement. So 30 days later (seeing no improvement) we have another consultation and he suggests the generic equivalent of Lamisil to be taken once a day for 7 days, then 30 days later repeat, then 30 days later repeat again. So I got a prescription for 21 pills @ 250mg. I was very leery of the medication, but taking it so infrequently seemed reasonable. I am happy to say that improvement is obvious; it looks like another 30 days or so and all my nails will be good. So is it the Lamisil or laser that works? Maybe in my case both were necessary. I think in one year's time my nails will be sandal worthy. M 59 21 days

By Sat I noticed the immediate aftertaste was almost gone and yesterday was able to have sugar in my tea and 2 glasses of wine for the first time since feb. Still not completely cured, seem to be producing quite a bit of saliva still that does not taste quite right, but at least now it is liveable with.

 1  toenail fungus severe itching / hives This is an updated to a comment I posted a couple weeks ago - went to Allergist yesterday- have had incessant itching and hives for three weeks with no relief. Allergist explained that it isn't an allergic reaction, rather, the Lamisil likely triggered my histamines and it started a cycle that needs to be broken. He said that there is a war between histamines and anti-histamines and whichever is better represented, will prevail. In my case, there was more histamine. Anway, he said to take 2-3 zyrtec tablets every day until you are not itching for 2-3 weeks, then scale back the zyrtec until 1 tablet a week until you are off. That should take care of the itch / hive problem. I am now on my first day of being 99% itch free in three weeks. Hope this helps any others out there suffering the same. He said it is safe to considerably more than indicated on the box but you may get drowsy. Drowsy beats itchy by a long shot! Good luck. F 7 days

 5  Toenail fungus Week 1, I experienced a real bad headache that wouldn't go away. Gained weight FAST in one week. I don't like sugar, but I craved it madly since taking Terbinafine, thus the gain weight right? Yay, lucky me. Week 1 was the hardest mainly due to the fear of the vast reviews on the Internet and the warning label on the bottle, but after the first week the headache went away and began to have more energy than I was used to. I was fairly fit before using Terbinafine, mainly because I ate well and didn't indulge in sweets, but out of no where I had uncontrollable sugar craves. I bloated. I was very unhappy for the first month and a half until I began to see healthy life on those awful nails. All my liver panels have been normal. Oh, I did have to wait a few days for my new prescription to be filled while the doctor waited on the test results. Once I began taking them again, I once again had a headache for about a day and a half. Nothing else since. I have a couple weeks left to go and my nails are looking good considering I had this for fifteen years, but they are growing strong. I just threw out all of my old socks away, bought some sprays and Lamisil cream to be on the safe side. I am happy and can't wait to buy my first pair of sandals. F 33 10 weeks

 1  Toe nail fungus woke up on 7th day itching head to toe - welts appeared on elbows and eventually all over my body. My ears have swelled and the rashes continue to come and go after 3 days off of the medication - went to emergency yesterday, got epi pin and steroid shot - didn't work now on perscription steroids. Took medicine years ago without incident. This time, as noted, it is causing serious skin reaction. Doctors at ER were shocked that Epi and steroid didn't work.

 1  infected toenail I wrote on 23rd April. Now been off meds nearly 7 weeks, no change. Plus I developed SCURVY due to not being able to take the taste of many fruits and veg, and have ended up on so many vitamin supplements I rattle. I am prone to depression anyway and although I'm on a high dose of meds this problem is making me feel close to the edge. Everything I drink and most things I eat taste unpleasant. If I thought for one minute I would be like this for life I would be looking into having my taste buds removed somehow and being fed by supplements, I would rather taste nothing than have this constant nasty taste in my mouth when I'm not eating and have no enjoyment from food. If you want to feel like you have no quality of life go ahead and take it. Fungal toenail can be cured by filing and applying bleach, I know it sounds drastic but not as drastic as this living h*ll I'm going through F 42 4 months

Occasionally happens at other times of the day as well. Didn't experience this symptom until about 3 weeks ago.

 1  fungal toenails 1 month after starting had stomach upset which I did not put down to drugs, 3 weeks after that started with horrible salty/sour taste, everything tastes vile. only realised today it was lamasil, and immediately stopped. gp thought it was GERD and put me on antacids and sent me for an endoscopy. terrified I will have this for the rest of my life, Used to love food now it is a nightmare. Even when I don't eat have constant foul taste, and foamy saliva, ugh. Really affecting quality of life, can't drink alcohol, can't go out for meals, can just about tolerate tea without sugar, soup and dry crackers.

 1  Toenail fungus athletes foot Extreme abdominal pain, nausea, fatigue. I used the spray for four nights. Began experiencing extreme abdominal pain and nausea. Lost sleep one full night due to the pain. Thought the pain was gas, but not having trouble passing gas. I then skipped two days, began feeling much better. Applied the night time gel between my toes as directed two nights ago. The abdominal discomfort returned, however not the extreme pain I'd experienced two three nights ago. I continue to eat, in spite of the nausea, to keep my energy up. I then began looking for the side effects and discovered that what I'm experiencing appears to be linked to the foot applicable forms of Lamisil. Trying tea tree oil and apple cider vinegar. NOTE...what made me look into the drug was my husbands experience 10 years ago. Extremely high liver numbers after just 3 weeks of the oral drug. STAY AWAY FROM THIS DRUG!!!!! F 43 5 days

 3  Toe Nail Fungus I took Terbinafine, the generic version of Lamisil for approximately 3 months and had great results with the nail problems. They are growing out healthy and seems to have finally rid my toes of the nail issues that I have dealt with for years. I would like to know if this medication can cause Severe Anxiety and Panic Attacks. I have suffered from depression and some anxiety for years but have always had it under somewhat control. I have never suffered from Panic Attacks until being on the Terbinafine (Lamisil). My first Panic Attack occured about 6 weeks after being on the medicine. I took it for approximately 3 months and stopped due to the Panic Attacks, as this is the only thing that I can imagine that make be causing them. I have been off for about 2 weeks and continue to suffer from the attacks.I would like to know if anyone else has suffered from Panic Attacks while taking this medication. If so, did the attacks stop after eventually stopping the medicine. Also would like to know how long this medication stays in your system after stopping it. I have heard that it can take months for your body to be rid of the medicine and the side effects. I appreciate any feedback on this. I am desperate to find out if this medication is the cause of my Panic Attacks. M 41 3 months

 2  1 big toenail fungus About two weeks into taking Lamisil I started having severe headaches, neck cramps, tingling in the scalp, neck and under arms, and burning sensation on the scalp and forehead. About one month in my hair started feeling course and looking dry and dull, and then it started thinning. The worst so far is, this morning, two months into taking Lamisil, I noticed a two inch circular patch of hair missing! The medicine seems to be helping with the new growth of my toe nail; however, this will be the last day I take Lamisil. Please contact me with any information you may have. willa.lynn@gmail.com F 43 4 months

 1  Toenail fungus I am writing this because my husband has been taking this medicine and he is profoundly depressed with severe mood swings and irrational feelings of worthlessness. I didn't know what had caused such a change and realized it began around the time he began this medicine. He won't accept there's a problem other than I'm the one at fault. I am desperately unhappy and am going to find a way to get rid of this medicine. Frankly, the fungus is preferable to the hell I'm currently living. M 49 3 months

 1  Toenail fungus I have never taken anything that made me feel as bad as Lamisil did. I literally felt like I had been poisoned. I was weak, dizzy, had nausea along with abdominal pain and loss of appetite with just an over all weird feeling. I also felt anxiety. I immediately stopped taking this drug after the third day and my body seemed to crave water to flush it out. I still feel the anxiety and bad taste in my mouth. F 66 3 days

 3  toenail fungus extreme fatigue, itching feeling all over like been in fiberglass, stinging pains, tingling and numbness, joint pain, muscle aches, blurred vision, muscle cramps, mild nausea When Lamisil prescription was filled pharmacy made error and labeled bottle to take 1 tablet 3 times a day. After 5 days of nausea and blurred vision this mistake was discovered. Nausea went away and blurred vision slowly cleared up. Joint and muscle pains started 3 weeks later after what I thought was flu (no flu test as had flu shot 2 weeks before started Lamisil). Severe fatigue then developed random stinging pain in hip - always same spot like wasp sting. After 2 mos numbness in big toes ,almost continuous brief tingling and stinging pains all over body with itching like rolled in fiberglass but no rash. Several episodes of severe thigh cramps while asleep. Noticed increased urination and thirst. Finished Lamisil 10 days ago and jpint and muscle pain gone. Tingling greatly diminished and itching gone. Still tired most of time. Saw doctor about stinging and tingling about 5 weeks ago but he didn't think Lamisil caused it or joint/muscle pain. Plans to do MRI in couple of weeks if still tingling pains. F 58 95 days

 1  Toe Nail Fungus Swollen Lymph Nodes; Severe constipation; Moderate anxiety; Severe depression; Joint pain; Lower back pain. Loss of sex drive. The lymph nodes under my arms started swelling after the first 3 days. Stopped taking Lamisil for 3 days and swelling went away. Started Lamisil again with same results. Continued with program and swelling disappeared after 10 days. No other side effects until 4th week when I started having serious constipation, bad enough to need enemas to have bowel movement. Currently taking 600 mg. Ducosate Sodium to have almost normal bowel movements. Anxiety began showing about the 4th week also, along with minor depression. After 6 weeks I had to take vacation time due to severe depression which almost cost me my job. When I stopped taking Lamisil my lower back really started bothering me. Other side effect that I don't know the time table on is sex drive went from drive, to idle, to park. When I first thought about taking this regimine several years ago my physician said that the treatment is worse than the cure. I believe him now. My real complaint is that when I filled the prescription I asked the pharmacist about contraindications, and she never informed me about any of the complaints I've had. M 62 6 weeks

 1  Toenail Fungus Severe headaches, nausea, fatigue, joint stiffness and pain, cloudy thinking, no appetite, taste disturbance. tongue and mouth feel funny. I hate toenail fungus and have seen lamisil work on family members. I tried Vicks, oregano oil, tea tree oil, and vinegar with minimal results. The side effects of this drug in the first three days are debilitating. I am off the drug and flushing my system with water, lots and lots of water. I've been doing research into plant medicine and have some ideas for a non-toxic topical preparation. Hopefully it will work because taking Lamisil orally feels like self-poisoning. F 43 3 days

 1  Toe Fungus Deep Deep depression and anxiety!! Lost 30 lbs in 40 days. Might be the only upside of this poison. After taking Lamisil for 3 weeks I developed extreme, extreme depression and anxiety. went so bad started having suicidal Ideaism. This stuff should be outlawed. The last straw was the red rash I developed over my right eye. After 40 days, F*** it!! I would rather deal with the toenail fungus I have had for several years. M 52 40 days

 3  Toenail fungus & athlete's foot Loss of taste, bad taste in mouth, dry mouth I took Lamisil for about 7 weeks (with significant improvement in the condition of my feet and nails after about 3-4 weeks) before I started to experience loss of taste (beginning with reduced ability to taste sweetness that has gradually worsened - sweet and salty are both pretty much gone), then a bad taste in my mouth, and now dry mouth. Only discovered yesterday that this is likely due to Lamisil, at which point I stopped taking it. Pretty unhappy that my doctor failed to warn me of the various side effects but from now on I'll be much better about asking. F 42 2 months

 5  Toenail Fungus Possible slight elevation in anxiety and bloatedness (though I'm generally anxious and I have eaten a lot lately) Currently on day 70. My doctor said there's no reason to take beyond 90 days. I haven't had any alcohol. My skin rash on the foot went away within 30 days. Toe nails appear to be improving, though I'm told I can't fully assess until they're grown out. I've also decreased my sugar intake due to added stress sugar can cause liver -- not dr. recommended, just purely speculative. Overall happy experience so far. M 36 70 days
