Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How does terbinafine work?

Terbinafine works by interfering with the production of a component of the fungal cell wall, leading to its eventual destruction.

Can terbinafine be used for toenail fungus?

Yes, terbinafine can be used to treat toenail fungus infections, but it typically requires a longer treatment course than other types of fungal infections and may take several months to see results.

Can terbinafine be used during pregnancy?

Terbinafine is generally not recommended during pregnancy unless the potential benefits outweigh the potential risks to the fetus. It is important to discuss the use of any medication during pregnancy with a healthcare professional.

How long does it take for terbinafine to work?

The length of time it takes for terbinafine to work depends on the type and severity of the fungal infection being treated. In general, skin infections may start to improve within a few days to a week of treatment, while toenail fungus may take several months to see results.
