Brief Answer:
need more information

Detailed Answer:
welcome to health care magic, I share your concern and I will try to help you out in best possible way.
I need to know more about why you were prescribed tab.terbinafine, the dosage and duration of consumption.
In an adult male, usual dosage is One 250 mg tablet once daily for 6 weeks. hence even if you take two tablets in single dose, there wont be any substantial change in terbinafine levels in your body.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.

Brief Answer:
continue with present medication

Detailed Answer:
Hi, welcome back.I appreciate your follow up.
yes tab.terbinafine is an anti fungal agent, prescribed in certain skin infections.
U can continue to take that medication for a prescribed time frame. but avoid missing the dose and also making it up for the missed dose by taking two tablets at a time, which alters theraputic levels of drug in your system.
I hope this helps you.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback
