Lamisil Review

Manufacturer’s Claim

Fungal infection is a condition that is embarrassing, unattractive and a nuisance so nobody wants to waste time treating the pesky issue with a product that only masks the condition with a temporary solution but does not entirely eliminate it. Lamisil is one of many products available on the market that claims to treat and eliminate fungal infections.  Here we review Lamisil’s tablets and determine the integrity of the product. They claim that 70% of subjects saw a significant decrease in the appearance of fungal disease, 59% saw nearly complete disappearance of fungal disease and 38% of patients were entirely cured of the fungal disease after 12 weeks of treatment. With numbers like these that promise a complete cure, we wanted to inspect further.


  • Terbinafine Hydrochloride
  • Colloidal Silicon Dioxide NF
  • Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose USP
  • Magnesium Stearate NF
  • Microcrystalline Cellulose NF
  • Sodium Starch Glycolate NF

The only active ingredient is terbinafine hydrochloride.


The recommended dosage for fingernail fungus is one 250 mg tablet a day for 6 weeks.

For treatment of toenail fungus, the recommendation is one 250 mg tablet daily for 12 weeks.

It is advised to be evaluated by a doctor for liver disease before taking Lamisil as it can cause problems with the liver such as liver failure and death. It is not recommended for anybody who has suffered from any liver condition, has had a reaction to terbinafine hydrochloride, has a weakened immune system or has lupus.

There has not been extensive research done on pregnant or nursing women so it is not recommended to consume if pregnant or nursing.

It is also not recommended to administer to adolescents. For patients above the age of 65, it is recommended to start at a low dosage and slowly increasing as there has not been enough geriatric patients who have taken Lamisil.


We could not find any price listed for Lamisil. You would have to consult your private doctor or insurance for pricing.

Possible Side Effects

The side effects listed for Lamisil raised a major red flag for us. The most concerning side effect is liver failure resulting in liver transplant and sometimes death.

Another side effect that was a cause for concern was the loss of taste and smell which in tests had resulted in decreased food intake and therefore, weight loss and in some cases depression and anxiety as a result. However, depression is also an additional side effect that is caused independently from experiencing loss of taste or smell.

Low white blood cell count, serious skin or allergic reactions, new or worsening lupus, blooding clotting issues, headache, diarrhea, rash, upset stomach, abnormal liver function tests, itching, nausea, stomach pain, and gas were also common side effects listed.


We were unable to find any price listed and therefore, no money back guarantees.

Lamisil Review – The Bottom Line

Lamisil has impressive statistics in treating fungal infections. It’s primary ingredient, Terbinafine Hydrochloride, is scientifically proven to tackle fungal infection in its entirety and the fact that Lamisil has successfully cured fungal infections in 38% of its consumers is what cued our interest into learning more about this product. However, its extensive list of alarming side effects impels us to look into natural solutions before turning to a product that is potentially lethal and has a plethora of uncomfortable side effects.
