I was prescribed the generic version of Lamisil and about 2 weeks into my treatment I started to feel cold in my throat and in my inner ears. I also began to experience diarrhea, nausea, headaches, and chills. The worst symptom was the frequent urination it gave me. I was going literally 7-8 times a night; pain in my bladder and ureter area (I'm male). It also gave me more fluid during urinati ... Show Full 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.

Note: I tried this product about 20 years ago and am reporting my age at that time.
