    So far very good. I am 70 pills into a 90 day treatment. My large nail which initially damage from a Ski Boot is starting to grow back normally (it is about 2/3 of the way out). I have been using topical spray Lamisil under the toenail at the same time. I have cut back on my caffeine some and also have cut way back on alcohol although I haven't stopped completely. I did stop the medicine ... Show Full Comment

    Severe side effects - major insomnia, anxiety, loss of appetite and dark colored urine. Had to stop after 18 days of use. 10 days off drug and am still suffering insomnia. Cannot work or drive some days.

    I suffered with toe/foot fungus for years & I'm on my 6 month of taking generic Lamisil & finally see results in my toenail. The only downside is the GI upset, constipation, & headache. I dealt with the side effects because I want to care the nail fungus. It works if you can tolerate the side effects.

    Comment:
    Struggled with a toe fungus for years and I got to point where I just wanted to get rid of it. I took this medication and within a few weeks I noticed results. Im almost done taking the medication after being on it for 84 days. Is there any thing I should do to keep my toes healthy?
