What is Terbinafine for?
Terbinafine is an oral antifungal medication which contains the active ingredient of the same name. Terbinafine tablets are prescribed to treat fungal nail infections and fungal skin infections, such as athlete's foot (tinea pedis), jock itch (tinea cruris) and ringworm (tinea corporis).
Terbinafine tablets are also ideal to treat infections that haven't cleared up with antifungal creams or for infections that are severe/widespread.
Medical Specialists offer the continuous course of Terbinafine, which involves taking one tablet of 250mg Terbinafine each day for a few weeks, or possibly even several months.
How does Terbinafine work?
Terbinafine kills the fungi causing the infection. It does this by causing holes to form within the fungal cell membranes and limiting the production of ergosterol – used by fungi to multiply.
How to take Terbinafine
The usual dose for adults, including the elderly is 250mg once a day.
