why and how does this affect the liver . ihave always taken pride in my toesnails and apparently thid product is effective in getting rid of this ## Hello, Kathy! How are you? Most medications are processed through the liver and carry the risk of causing liver damage or failure, though it usually only occurs with long-term use of high dosages. Lamisil contains the active ingredient Terbinafine, which is classified by the FDA as an antifungal agent. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, change in sense of taste or sneak, stomach pain and diarrhea. If you have a liver issue, there are topical ones that you may be able to use, instead. Have you discussed all of your options with your doctor?

Please let me know if I can take lamsil pills while taking atripla ## I didn't find any interactions listed between these two medications, but you should always double check such information to be certain. Lamisil may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, diarrhea and vertigo. Atripla may cause side effects, such as dizziness, drowsiness and skin discoloration. Is there anything else I can help with?

I have just been prescribed Lamasil by my podiatrist. When looking online to see the detailed side effects and drug interactions of Lamisil, Metotoprol was listed as an interacting medicine. How will Metotoprol interact with my taking Lamasil? It does not say what the interaction is, but since Metotoprol is a beta blocker, I am concerned before I start taking the Lamasil. I want to start taking the oral Lamasil to get rid of a pretty bad nail infection. Thank you.
