Lamisil Side Effects

Have you or a loved one been prescribed Lamisil to treat fungal infections?  Did severe side effects follow months, even years, after Lamisil treatment?  If so, you’re not alone.  And you have rights!
Lamisil (or Terbinafine) is classified as an antifungal.  It is prescribed to treat fungal infections of the fingernail and toenail, and works by stopping the growth of fungi.

Rare cases of liver failure, some leading to death or liver transplant, have occurred with the use of Lamisil.  Hepatoxicity may occur in patients with and without pre-existing liver disease.  There have also been isolated reports of serious skin reactions.

In 2001, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reviewed a number of possible Lamisil-associated cases of liver failure, including two that required liver transplants, and another 11 ending in death.  Given these serious Lamisil side effects, the FDA required new labeling, recommending healthcare providers perform testing to confirm the diagnosis prior to prescribing the drug.
