I have been on the generic for Lamisil for 5 weeks. I have only one side effect, stomach cramping, which lasted 1 day. I haven't had any other side effects. I am waiting to see results in the appearance of my toenails.

My fungus went away but so did my taste! I had taken it for almost a month when I noticed that I couldn't taste any thing. I stopped taking the med. and it has been 2 years my taste is better but I still can't taste like I could....especially sweets.

I have been taking this drug for over a year and it hasn't done anything for my toenail fungus. In fact, I think maybe I took it for too long a time as I read where it shouldn't be taken more than 2 months because the effect it could on your liver.
