What are Terbinafine tablets?

Terbinafine are antifungal tablets that contain an active ingredient called terbinafine. This attacks the source of fungal nail infections to reduce symptoms and treat infection. The tablets are small and easy to swallow, and a normal course for fungal nail infections can last for a few months.

Terbinafine tablets are also available under the brand name Lamisil. The main difference between Terbinafine and Lamisil is the branding: Terbinafine is a generic treatment and is made by several companies, while Lamisil is a branded tablet made by just one company.

How does Terbinafine work?

Fungal nail infections happen when yeast or mould from the environment enter small cracks in the skin around your nail. This fungus is strengthened by chemicals called sterols. Sterols hold the membrane of the fungi together so that it can grow.

Terbinafine attacks sterols and prevents them from strengthening the fungi. Without the sterols the infection membranes breakdown and the infection is killed.

What doses of Terbinafine tablets are there?

Terbinafine comes in a single dosage size – 250mg. You can take it as a daily course, or as something called ‘pulsed therapy’, where you’ll take it for one week at the start of every month but at a higher dose.

Terbinafine is also available as a cream, gel and spray, and your clinician may suggest a short combined course of tablets and cream.

How to take Terbinafine tablets

There are two ways to take Terbinafine tablets. Your clinician will advise you about the best treatment plan for you.

Daily

  • Terbinafine tablets are usually taken once a day.
  • Depending on the severity of infection, the course of treatment can last between two weeks and six months.
  • Swallow your tablet whole with water and take it at the same time each day.

Pulsed

  • Two tablets are taken each day for seven days, followed by 21 days off.
  • This is then repeated for two to three months.
  • Swallow your tablet whole with water and take it at the same time on the days you take it.

How long does it take Terbinafine to work?

If taken daily, terbinafine tablets take from two weeks to six months to work. Your treatment time will depend on the severity of your infection. Our clinician will tell you how long to take the tablets for.

For pulsed treatment, the tablets are usually taken for three months. You may need to take them for longer if your infection does not go away.

What should I do if I make a mistake when taking Terbinafine?

Let our clinician know if you forget to take Terbinafine.

The best way to avoid making a mistake when taking Terbinafine tablets is to take the tablets at the same time every day.

If you forget to take your tablet you should take the missed tablet as soon as you remember. You shouldn’t take two tablets at the same time to make up for the forgotten one as this can increase the risk of side effects. If it’s nearly time to take your next tablet, simply skip the one you missed, and carry on as normal from your next tablet.

FAQ: Terbinafine Tablets

Have something specific you want to know? Search our info below, or ask our experts a question if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

How are Terbinafine tablets different from other treatments for fungal nail infections?

Answer:
Terbinafine is available in tablet form and also as a cream. The active ingredient is the same in both products, the only difference is in the way you take the medication. Cream is applied directly to the infection, and the tablets are swallowed.

There are other treatments for fungal nail infections you can get as nail lacquers or nail solutions. These contain a slightly different active ingredient, but work in a very similar way.

Is Terbinafine similar to any other treatments?

Answer:
Lamisil is a very similar treatment to Terbinafine, it’s just a branded version of the same drug. Terbinafine, as a generic treatment, won’t always be made by the same lab and will usually be cheaper.

But there shouldn’t be any difference between the two in clinical terms. They contain the same active ingredients in the same dose, but other things like the tablet coating and the packaging will be different.

Which dose of Terbinafine tablets should I use?

Answer:
The usual dose for fungal nail infections is one 250mg tablet, once a day. Our expert clinicians will discuss treatment options with you and advise either a daily or pulsed treatment plan.

Your clinician will give you clear instructions about how many tablets to take each day and how long to take them for.

Do I need a prescription for Terbinafine tablets?

Answer:
Terbinafine cream is available as a pharmacy medicine, but terbinafine tablets are prescription only because a clinician needs to decide on the best course of treatment to suit your needs. They’ll also need to monitor whether the treatment is working over a period of weeks.

Why should I buy Terbinafine tablets online with Treated?

Answer:
When you buy Terbinafine online with Treated you’ll have an online consultation with an expert clinician without the hassle of booking a doctors’ appointment and waiting for your prescription at the pharmacy.

After you and your doctor have agreed on your treatment plan, your medication will be sent to you from our pharmacy.

We’ll check in with you to ensure that your treatment is on track and that you have enough medication to complete your course of treatment.
