I might be in the wrong forum as well but I was prescribed lamisil after a positive test for Onychomycosis on my toenails. I was told to take one tablet a day for 3 months. My doctor did check my liver before starting and he called to say everything was normal and to go forth with the treatment.
I've heard so many bad things from hair loss, death, loss of taste and I'm so scared. I'm 21, a semester from graduating college and can't afford radical side effects from trying to cure nail fungus.
Consider tea tree oil, a safe natural over the counter remedy. It’s a powerful antibacterial and antifungal agent. Apply with a clean Q-tip twice a day. Use for three to six months. Be sure to keep your nails trimmed.
Tea tree oil may not have as high a cure rate as Sporanox and it’s not as well studied … because it’s not a drug! However, if it works for you, you’re in business.
A safe but pricier topical treatment available by prescritpion is Penlac. Apply twice a day for eight to twelve months.
To prevent toenail fungus, avoid tight fitting shoes. Wear flip flops in communal showers and dry thoroughly. Apply antifungal powder to soles of feet and in between toes.
