Re: lamisil

Thanks so much, Dr. Vivian. I'm sorry to hear that terbinafine only has a 70% success rate, and I may be unlucky. :(

I was diagnosed 15 years ago. No tests. Dr. looked at it and said, "Yes, fungus." He removed the nail, prescribed a topical to be used for a year. Nail grew out nicely, but fungus returned right away. I've been using various topicals all these years. They only slow the growth, which quickly accelerates if 2 days are missed. The gen. terbinafine worked great! I was so happy! Two months after finishing it--sad again. Got another prescription of gen. terbinafine immediately. Apparently mine is a real mean strain and I may have to deal w/ it forever--unless I should try a DIFFERENT DRUG? Are there different therapy suggestions for different strains of this stuff? Of the five doctors I've seen, none of them seem to know much. Have there been any other developments in onychomycosis research? WHERE CAN I DONATE?

Can I do 90 days of the terbinafine twice a year or more if I have to, as long as blood is tested and liver is good, or would this be futile and stupid? Another site said there is no evidence of terbinafine tolerance... thank you.
