So I started taking this medicine last September 2013. Month 1 -- it was Terbinafine, with very very slow reaction to it and nail improvement. Spring 2014 took Month 2 prescription -- it was then Lamisil, again, with very very slow nail improvement. Although at this point about 2/3 of my big toe had improved greatly. No serious side effects that were unbearable or noticeable. Which is what made me ... Show Full Comment

I am almost in my third month ... Show Full Comment
