 1  Toenail fungus on one toe Unexplained, isolated swelling & itching on hands, wrists, & lips - lasting about 24-48 hours. A bad, overwhelming taste I describe as greasy and salty developed. This lack of appetite and bad taste was a large problem for me for about 8 weeks. This bad taste was not a mere inconvenience; it affected me physically and psychologically very severely. I threw away this medicine as soon as I suspected it was the cause, and also after reading this rating website. I strongly recommend that you do not take this medicine - it is not worth taking a chance. If you are experiencing side effects - hang in there and keep in touch with your doctor. I am back 100% and am grateful that I threw Lamisil away when I did. I plan to write to the National Institute of Health to inform them of my severe problems with this drug, and I encourage others with problems to do the same. F 58 6 weeks

 1  TOE FUNGUS Facial hives and rash followed by extremely dry skin from about week three to week five, then lost my sense of taste. Even worse, food tastes bad like its spoiled or something, can's taste sweet or salt, yet water or coffee tastes salty. The facial rash i could handle, but the loss of taste is debilitating in many ways. wish I had visited this site before I took this poison. Where is 60 minutes or 20 20 when you really need them? Do not take this drug. M 58 55 days

 1  toenail fungus headache fatigue, hot flashes, clamy skin, achey body, insomnia, jelly feeling arms and legs I am so glad I found this site. I was worried I was starting early menopause the hot flashes were so bad. Within 24 hours of starting my first dose, I had a headache that would not stop, It was so bad a night, I thought I was going to die from a stroke! My arm and legs felt very heavy. I always felt hot and my face and arms would sweat even though to the touch my skin was cold. I took 2 doses, decided to skip a dose and I felt better. Went back on it on day 4 and these symptoms came right back. I was unable to function, had not energy, felt what I would describe as "depressed" though I have never suffered from depression. I decided after only 4 doses this is not worth it to get rid of fungus on 2 toenails. I is a quality of life thing. I can't imagine what it would do to my body if I were on it for an extended amount of time and I do not want to risk it. F 40 4 days

 1  Toenail Fungus Hair loss; mild nauseau I lost approximately half of my hair while taking Lamisil -- it was coming out by the handful. My podiatrist had never heard of the side effect, but confirmed it with me after doing some research. He said it happened in about 1% of patients. It took about an add'l 2-3 months for the hair loss to stop. Now I'm using a topical gel which is clearing up the fungus slowly, but I'm happy to be getting my thick, full hair back. M 37 16 days

 1  toe nail fungus After 5 days woke up with pain on inner side of knee extremely painful and sensitive touch. Day 9 developed lower back pain. Just realized after reading all the posts that I have been lethargic during the day and moving like a decades older. Normally very energetic and always moving. Interfering with my ability to exercise. Some bloating. Planning on calling my physician today. Probably will come off the medication. Disappointed because I do not know of any alternative treatment.

 1  toe nail fungus lethargic; depression; very slow reaction time; insomnia all this on the second day. I started taking the generic form of lamisil 2 days ago, the first day was uneventful, but I couldn't sleep that well. Day two was bad. I was fine till about 3 hours after i took it and started feeling unmotivated and nearly unresponsive. I was at lunch with friends and they asked if I was feeling depressed. I told them i was on medication. All my other senses were enhanced though - smell, taste etc. I did get to a point of confusion though. i found myself walking back and forth unable to deside weather to put my keys on the table or sit down first. I felt like I had to lay down. I stayed at home the rest of the day and i felt better a few hours later. This stuff sucks big time. M 43 2 days

 1  slight toe fungus An itchy rash that started on the back of my head. Then it came out on my back, right in the middle, of course. Went to four dermatologists - NO ONE KNEW HOW TO HELP ME. Never take prescription drugs - especially this one. I have had this rash for four (yes,FOUR!) years now and probably will have to battle it the rest of my life. Should be banned in the United States. F

 1  Doctor's Order I didn't take it, after reading coments on this website. Forget the Lamisil. Go to your corner drugstore and spend a few bucks on VICKS VAPO-RUB ! It cures toenail fungus with NO side effects ! Just rub it in to your toes every night, and that's it ! M 69

 1  Toenail fungus The worst possible I had pretty much all of the worst of the side effects, depression, unable to eat and feeling all around bad. I stopped taking these about maybe 7 or 8 months ago and eventhough I am mush better then I was when I was on the pills. My nails are great and everything, I still have episodes. I'm not completely myself and I don't know what to do because when I did go to my doctor with the side effects in the beginning he said that he hadn't heard of them and maybe it wasn't the pills. He didn't believe me but I know it was the pills. All I can say is no one should ever take these pills because you are still going to be dealing with the side effects for months after finishing the pills. F 21 4 months

 1  toe nail fungas LOSS OF TASTE BUDS! I have been taking this medication now for 6 weeks (half way mark) and will discontinue because it is affecting the quality of my life. At 4 weeks lost my sense of taste buds, everything I eat tastes like nothing. Its like eating and drinking the taste of water. My mood has also been affected, cranky all the time, and not to mention no sex drive. Its not worth loosing one of your senses over this. So i guess i will just live with the fungas and be sure to hide my feet in the sand in the summer. F 38 6 days

 1  Fingernail infection 2 days of dizziness, 1 week of headache, 1 month of abdominal pain/cramp which hasn't gone away yet 4 weeks after quitting the pill... I had read all the comments here, but I wanted to try anyway... One of the most regrettable decisions of my life... I have been suffering strange abdominal cramps/discomfort on the lower right. It started on the 8th day. It has then spreaded to some nerves probably, because I am having pains on mu hip and legs too... I don't know what the hell this drug did to me... Doctors can't diagnose anything... I can't believe I am in this kind of problem all of a sudden, just because of a small infection I was trying to heal... I beg people who read this.

 1  Nail fungus Sudden taste changes after 5 and a half weeks. didn't connect to Lamisil initially. Complete loss of taste and sudden dizziness after 6 weeks - scary. Everything tasted salty, even water. Salty things and sweet thing had no taste. Chocolate tasted like a lump of fat. Most disturbing constant salty taste. Taste has gradually improved over 2 weeks after stopping Lamisil and is now (thankfully!)getting back to normal. Dizziness lessened after about a week of stopping but still get occasionally. Hasn't fixed my nail. Don't ever take this! No nail problem is worth these risks. F 44 6 weeks

 1  toe nail fungus Fatigue, lethargy, muscle and joint pain, intense weird dreams,insomnia, muddled thinking It took me 3 weeks to finally realize that it was this DAMN, HORRIBLE drug that was making my life miserable. My character changed so much on Lamisil.In general, I am extremely health and go the the gym regularly with a zest for life.I have stopped taking it for only one day now and feels so much better-almost like I have my life back. What is freeaky is that both my GP and Dermatologist and Pharmacist offer little warnings about the complications of this drug. STAY AWAY from this stuff! M 3 weeks

 1  toenail fungus At the six week point I lost the ability to taste. This was very distressing and I was not able to find any information about how long this might last. My doctor and pharmacist were both clueless saying they had never heard that before from previous patients. I called Novartis (the drug manufacturer) and was not given any useful information only to contact my doctor who as I said, didn't know! I could not register sweet taste at all and what I could taste didn't taste the way it was supposed to - it was literally like eating garbage! Water was foul, coffee tasted like salt, meats were extremely gross. I have had a continual bitter taste in my mouth and have developed a sore throat and a gnawing sensation in my stomach - I think it may be acid reflux so I'm taking Prilosec OT which seems to be helping. I quit the lamisil 4 weeks ago when these symptoms began and I still do not have my taste back. No one has been able to tell me how long this will last or assure me that my taste F 48 6 weeks

 1  Toe Nail Fugus Rash on day 1 that got progressivly worse through day 3. Have had toe fungus for 10 years. Figured that since I just had a clean bill of health (liver panel) and the drug went generic I would give it try. I took the pill on Tuesday at 6:00pm with dinner. By the next day at 4:00pm I had a rash that developed under my right arm pit that ran from front to back. I also developed a rash that started in between my butt cheeks all the way to the front. It is a minor rash but it itchs pretty bad. I took the pill for another 2 days, but have decided to stop taking it to see if the rash disapears. M 31 3 days

 1  yellow nails I was on Lamisil for 30 days, before I lost my taste. It took me about a week to figure out it was from the Lamisil. I went on line and typed in “loss of taste lamisil”. To my surprise a number of sites came up and I found out I was not alone. I called my PCP and the dermatologist and told them about it. Both told me it was very rare and my taste would return. After going through all the material on line I called the doctors back and told them to go on line and then tell me it’s rare. I was very upset with the side affect and let them know any time they prescribe this drug, the patient should be told about the potential for loss of taste besides the liver damage Lamisil may cause. Your doctor should draw blood before you even start the drug to be sure your liver enzymes are normal. Anyone with liver trouble should not take the drug. I asked the doctor how long I would have the loss of taste. The answers ranged from 3 weeks to 3 months to 3 years and one said I may nev M 56 30 days

 1  3 toes nails infection I was so afraid of Lamisil reading all these comments. So, I soaked my foot in 1/2 white vinegar + warm water everyday since middle of June 2007. I had 3 infected toes nails. I soaked while I ate dinner, while I was at my working desk. About 20 minures a a time ar as long as I had time. All of my 3 toe nails are now all healed , no sign of infection any more. Email me if you like. I'll be more than happy to share with you the good news. It cost me about 2 gallons of white , cheap vinegar ($6) after suffering for about 5, 6 years and lots of money on medicines that are good for nothing. IT DOES WORK. Try it and be patient. REMEMBER the vinegar needs to soak into the nail as much as when you get the nail soften by being in the swimming pool. that is when the vinegar really get to the fungus. The infected nails were just so soft and bad that they peeled off after the vinegar got to the fungus. F 51

 1  Toenail fungus Headaches that were severe in the afternoon and night, fatigue, dizziness, nausea and tired eyes all day. I just stopped taking this pill 2 days ago after reading the comments in this website, I'm very happy I found this otherwise I probably wouldn't known what was making my life so miserable. I think living like this is definetely not worthy just to have a nail look good, I'm making an appointment with my doctor to let her know that I'm not willing to take this anymore and to get something else if possible. If anybody that has stopped this pill has found an alternative for the fungus problem please email me or post it here. Thanks!!! Is a shame that the company that makes this pill, the doctor or the pharmacist doesn't warn you on any of these horrible side effects...and yes after 2 days off the pill my life is back to normal!!!

I know serious drugs cause bad side effects (hey, chemo makes you sick and go bald!) but this is not exactly cancer here. Can anyone tell me an alternative drug without hair loss side effects?

 1  jock itch My chest hurts inexplicably which I think it due to severe acid reflux. I went to the emergency room one night recently because I thought I might be having a heart attack. It wasn't a heart attack but probably severe acid reflux combined with a panic attack. I also had an outbreak of a rash for a few weeks on my face and neck and torso. Never had any of these problems before Lamasil. I'm convinced all of them are related to Lamasil. Also my jock itch did not go away. Do not take this drug. Very dangerous. M 40 7 days

 1  no toe nail fungal infection http://www.earthclinic.com/CURES/fungus.html#ted If you go to this site, you will find the cure forb the nail fungal infection. I got cure in 6 weeks using vinegar/water. My infected nails are all dropped of, leaving the beautiful white clean nail beds I have nor seen in 5,6 year. After the nail bed healed from the nail avulsion,about 2 weeks after the surgery, I began to soak my whole foot in the 1/2 cheap white vinegar and 1/2 water. This soaking I do as many times a day as I had time, and about 1/2 hour at a time. I have a plastic bucket under the desk in my office and a bucket under my dinner table at home. So while I am eating dinner and working at my desk, I just put my foot in to soak. Give it a try. IT WORKS. F 52

 1  Toenail fungus This is my second bout with toenail fungus; I took sporonox a decade ago with good results. This time my podiatrist recommended lamisil; by day 6 (of 90) I was moody and listless, and most concerning, I was experiencing bleeding under my fingernails in the form of black lines (petechiae). Stopped taking it, and everything went back to normal within a few weeks. Scary little pills, those...I'll probably try sporonox again later this year.

 1  toes nail fungal infection I had 3 infected toes nails, 2 smalls toes and the big toe, for at least 5 years now. I got a prescription for this Lamisil Pill from my regular doctor to use . But my podiatrist did not encourage me to take it, he even hesitate. So he and I decided to not take the pill but to remove all of the three nails. I did not do anything else after the nails were removed (nine months ago). So the small nail grown back perfectly normal and beautiful. The second nail grown back decent. The big nail again still had fungus. So my podiatrist just removed again the big and the second nails AND he recommended "as soon as the skin on the nail bed healed, begin to apply topical medicine, like lamisil oitment, Vick Vapor rub, or other fungal cream/liquid to kill the fungus before the nails grown back." i'll let you know how it come out. Does anyone can testify to the effective of the Vicks Vapor rub on the killing of the fungus on the nail? F 50

 1  toenail fungus similar to a lot of people here, extreme fatigue, malaise, feeling down, brief rash that resolved within a day -- for some reason, I didn't attribute these things to the drug until I read this site, and kept asking my friends -- what is wrong with me? why am I so tired? I didn't know that these were potential side effects (all I had heard about were the well publicized liver problems) I am discontinuing this drug as of today -- I am taking a very important test in 5 weeks, and can't afford to be this tired and lethargic. Can anyone who discontinued the drug please email me (or post it here) and let me know how long it for you to go back to feeling normal again? I looked at the half-life for the drug and it said 36 hours, but then said terminal half life 200-400 hours, so I'm not sure what to make of this. Thanks in advance! I am going to try the Vicks vapor rub -- I've also heard that this works. F 33 6 days

 1  nail fungus SEVERE, HORRIFIC RASH all over my body; itchy, red, blistery crusts, mostly on my back & torso and soles of my feet!! (Try getting dressed for work with that). Has lasted over 2 months - despite Steroids, hydrocortisone, etc. Even sores on scalp, lips and eyebrows! Unable to wear anything that shows forearms, legs, feet, etc. It is truly a disfiguring, gross, rash. They don't tell you its only effective about 30% of the time!!!! I'm (was) a very healthy female. The dermatologists are still tossing around terms like "drug induced lupus from Lamisil", "virus", etc. Really consider whether this would be worse than your nail fungus. F 51 56 days

 1  cosmetic toenail fungus I first took Lamisil at night before bed and the next morning when I got out of bed I stumbled around like I was drunk. My equilibrium was shot and I was very dizzy. I called my doctor's office and they said it probably wasn't related to the Lamisil but to stop taking it to make sure. I took another pill a week later over a weekend when I knew I wouldn't be driving, and within four hours I was incredibly drowsy and dizzy. I ended up sleeping that night for thirteen hours and still woke up very dizzy and with a heaviness in my legs. I've only taken the pill twice since I got the prescription but I'm not taking it anymore. Who knows what else will happen? I was only supposed to take it for one week a month for three months. If you're usually susceptible to side effects of any medicine like I am, don't take this. F 35 2 days

Over this period I have had back pain, insomnia (2 hours sleep per night), and severe depression / anxiety, and chest pain. I went to my doctor today thinking either I had heart issues or was going crazy. He told me to quit taking it. I then found this site. Glad I did as I had an appointment to see a shrink. M 45 30 days

 1  nail fungus on eight toe nails I was taking the pills for about 16 days when I started having these panic attacks, like I would freak out for no reason. I would get these strange thoughts popping into my head, like thinking I was dying and was the last day I was going to be alive. I didn't eat well, maybe ate something very small once a day...tired alot of the time. I've stopped taking the pills for almost a week now, I still can't eat well and feel like someone is sitting on my chest...numbness in my right arm sometimes. I get some little chest pains as well, I hate feeling like this and hope it goes away soon. I was really scared at first, now I KNOW it's the pills...so waiting for them to go away F 20 2 weeks

Have stopped now for over a week. Taste not back but my mouth feels a little better. No-one mentioned alcohol and liver problems to me. I will ask my doctor. Find another product!!! F 50 6 weeks

 1  Toe fungus DO NOT TAKE THIS DRUG …… IT will KILL you. Started out like the flu, sore and achy joints, sever headaches, nausea and vomiting, fatigue, sensitivity to bright light, rash, depression, dark colored urine, clay colored stool after diarrhea stopped. I wound up in the hospital for 2 weeks …. Liver inflamed and my other organs shutting down. My doctor told my husband that I was not going to make it if my other organs kept shutting down. My doctors seem to think LAMSIL was the cause of this problem. Notified the drug company but all I got out of them was that it is a safe drug. After seeing the comments in here, I would say that this is a really dangerous drug. I wonder how many people have actually died while taking LAMSIL. It has been 3 yrs now and I am still having problems associated with this drug. DO NOT TAKE THIS DRUG IF YOU VALUE YOUR HEALTH AND OR YOUR LIFE! F 51 13 days

 1  Toenail fungus Metallic taste became overwhelming. Brushing teeth & tongue made the symptoms worse. Breath bad regardless of brushing several times a day. After reading this website, worried that symptoms would never go away and stopped immediately. If it was curing cancer - maybe...but who wants to live with these side effects only to POSSIBLY have better looking toenails? NOT ME! F 45 22 days

 1  Toanail fungus Loose stools and diarrhea after about 3 weeks which has continued persistenly until I stopped taking the drug after about 55 days. Sometimes I use the bathroom 6-8 times a day. I have also lost about 7 pounds. After being off the drug for 4 days, the diarrhea seems to be abating. I would rather live with the fungus than go through the digestive issues from this drug. I don't know yet whether the drug taken thus far has had any effect on the fungus. M 71 55 days

 1  Toenail fungus None except for a virtually complete loss of taste at week 6 or so. Since I believed the literature that claimed that this was generally a reversible (i.e. temporary) side-effect, I continued taking the medication for the entire 3-month regimen. Even though I've been off this medication for 6 months now, my sense of taste is still extremely subdued (especially with sweet foods). Based on what I've read, I really wonder if the indcidence of this particular side-effect is limited to just 3% of people taking this drug. If I had known that there was a possibility of a substantial long-term impairment of one of my senses, I never would have taken this drug in the first place. M 46 3 months

 1  toenail fungus Nausea, diarrhea, flatulence, achy joints, headaches, abdominal pain, hives/skin rash, and fatigue. Headaches started during the first week. Flatulence and diarrhea began around the third week, which persisted and became worse throughout the course of the medication. Abdominal pain and nausea kicked in around the fifth week. The fatigue and something that appeared to be hives started during the last week of treatment. After the first few breakouts of hives, I was able to rule out environment and food as a cause. This led me to believe that most likely it was something internal. I have recently come off of the medication, but I am still suffering from the severe stomach pain, diarrhea, headaches, fatigue, flatulence, diarrhea, and skin rash. The big downside is that Lamisil does build up in the blood stream, and can remain in the system for a long time. Now it is a waiting game to see how long these symptoms will persist. F 26 50 days

 1  toe fungi Bad reaction that happened after 5 pills of Lamisil 250. Bad rash all over my body, burning sensation and itching. Started with severe rash up my legs that turned red, itchy and resembled welts. Dermo ordered to stop taking the s..t and began treating the effects with anti-biotic ointment, burn ointments and vinegar soaks and washes. It has been close to a months and more of the rash comes up now and then but in lesser intensity. Skin burning is also going away, scalp itching is subsiding and there is little hair fall out. Disgusting stuff especially if you are over 40. Do not use if you value your health and well being. Pharmos should be put on trial for this!!!! DANGEROUS TOXIC S..T!!! F 5 days
