Does Terbiforce Have Any Side Effects?

Age - 40 years, ht. - 5ft. 8 inches, weight - 68 kgs. My nail on the thumb of left toe are discoloured. I met a dermatologist who prescribed test for fungal infection. It was found that no fungal infection was there. However the doctor prescribed me 01 tablet each of Terbiforce alongwith a vit. B - complex & C daily initially for two months, which may be extended to 3 to 4 months more. A skin ointment (Flutibact) has also been prescribed. I am comfortable with ointment. I just want to know whether I have to gulp down so many tablets of Terbiforce for no infection of my left toe. Is there any alternative. any side effcets of Terbiforce.

Hi,

Terbiforce tablet contains terbinafine which belongs to the group of medications known as antifungals is used to treat a wide range of fungal infections of the skin and nails, including ringworm. It works by killing the fungus that causes the infection. Ketoconazole or miconazole can be taken as an alternative to terbinafine. Side effects of Terbiforce are nausea, vomiting, headache, rash, abnormal liver enzyme, diarrhoea or constipation, indigestion, mood swings, lethargy, severe chest pain, irregular heartbeat, peeling of skin, loss of appetite, abdominal pain, arthralgia, myalgia, allergic reactions etc.

Take care. Hope I have answered your questions. Let me know if I can assist you further.
