I took this drug for a toenail infection. I had diarrhea day 4, 5 and 6 but then that stopped and I didn't have any further problems until after day 50. I completely lost my sense of taste and what I could taste was horrendous. I have not eaten anything but popcorn for two weeks, even water tastes bad. I am losing weight but I am completely miserable. No energy at all. I am hoping my tas ... Show Full Comment

I took the generic version of Lamasil for about 5 weeks and then lost all sense of taste except for the salty taste of my saliva. I have stopped taking for about 2 weeks and still taste salt in my mouth. Even water tastes salty. I would not recommend this med to anyone!

When I first started taking this medication, nothing happened for the first 3 weeks and then I began having abnormal bowel movements.Then I was urinating every 5 minutes and it was painful.

The next day I started having the wo ... Show Full Comment

I am so glad that I decided to take the generic version of this medicine! I was really worried about doing so after reading all the negative side effects everyone seems to have. I seriously expected to experience some sort of side effect while taking this. I am happy to report that I had absolutely no problems of any kind. I did the required liver tesing, eliminated caffeine, limited my alcoho ... Show Full Comment
