General description

Lamisil is an antifungal medicine which has a broad pharmacological action. It contains an active ingredient Terbinafine. This ingredient changes an early stage of biosynthesis of sterols (natural binds which stimulates a growth of fungi). During the change of biosynthesis of sterols, there is a lack of this binds in the cells of fungi, so that they stop growing and gradually die.

Lamisil is released in the form of ointment and pills. A choice of the medical form depends on the severity of the fungous infection, site and originator of infection. Lamisil even in low concentration easily inhibits a development of dermatophyte, mold fungi, certain dimorphic fungus and also some yeast fungi.

A process of the change of biosynthesis of the nutritious binds happens slowly, and therefore a therapeutic effect occurs only during the prolonged and regular use of Lamisil.

Indications for the use 

  • Athlete’s foot
  • yeast infections of the skin (including infections caused by Candida)
  • pityriasis versicolor
  • onychomycosis (only Lamisil tablets are used during this form of the disease)
  • Fungus of head and hair

In what dose is Lamisil used?

Using Lamisil cream, area of the skin should be washed and dried. Cream is applied with a thin layer and slightly ribbed in. it is easily absorbed into the skin, and therefore there will be no signs of Lamisil in 2-3 minutes.

If mycosis and tinea versicolor, Lamisil cream is used once per day before sleeping. If skin candidiasis, or skin crevice, cream is applied 2 times per day (in the morning and evening).
