Terbinafine tablet is indicated for the treatment of onychomycosis of the toe nail or finger nail due to dermatophytes and also by non-dermatophyte fungi.
Dosage & Administration
Terbinafine cream to affected areas once or twice daily for 1-2 weeks may be adequate for fungal infections of the skin but certain infections may require oral Terbinafine tablet therapy.
Usual duration of treatment of Terbinafine cream:
- In Tinea corporis and Tinea cruris: 1-2 weeks.
- In Tinea pedis: 2-4 weeks (One week of treatment will normally suffice if the cream is applied twice daily.).
- In Cutaneous candidiasis: 1-2 weeks
- In Pityriasis (tinea) versicolor: 2 weeks.
To prevent relapses in fungal infection, treatment should be continued for a adequate length of time. To apply Terbinafine cream clean and dry the affected areas thoroughly and apply the cream once or twice a day to the affected skin and surrounding area in a thin layer and rub in lightly. In the case of intertriginous infections the application may be covered with a gauze strip, especially at night.
