The answer is no. But Lamisil is the most used oral antifungal medication. Many of the insurance companies seem to have chosen Lamisil as their "prefered drug." I'm not sure how this happens, but I have my opinion. Others are Sporanox and Diflucan. Lamisil has the greatest rate of success. I agree with you that the cost is prohibitive. I will say that Novartis, the company that owns Lamisil does have some program for those in need, but there are restrictions. You might beg your doctor for some samples to see if that might help defray the cost. I also think they have (or had) a money back guaranty.

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
