I'm taking the generic Lamisil called Terbinafin HCL for athletes foot and toenail fungus. I take one pill that isn't big at all and easy to swallow. I've been taking it for 30 days and within 2 weeks of taking it my feet are already cleared up and smooth and seems to be free of athletes feet. I'm amazed at that alone!! It's too soon to tell on my nails but I see a line wha ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
other reviews have been very helpful- I didn't experience any side effects until being on it for approx. 1 month and glad I knew this was coming. nasty taste in mouth at all times, eating anything feels like chewing cardboard. face is flushed all the time and mild rash on chest. not sure I can continue to take it.
