I was prescribed lindane as a last resort. We've had scabies for almost 2 mos. and after 2 applications of Permethrin cream I was prescribed Lindane.

My doctor didn't give me proper instructions on using this medicine. Therefore I have broke out into a reaction, severe headaches, soreness, nausea. I would NEVER use this medicine again.

Comment:
This medication should only be prescribed AFTER other treatments have failed, yet I was prescribed it right off the bat. I used it as directed, and it did not kill the scabies eggs at all. The risks do NOT outway the benefits of this medication, and it was not at all effective in treating my scabies-
