Terbinafine is an antifungal treatment for a number of fungal infections including:

Fungi are microorganisms which often reside in damp, dark environments such as soil and plants, though there are some fungi which naturally live on the skin.
Fungi, much like bacteria, multiply asexually in a cycle in order to thrive. The fungi which live on the skin are kept in check by the immune system, which regulates the growth of fungi and prevents them from multiplying too quickly or in large numbers. In those with compromised or weak immune systems, the fungi can multiply faster than the immune system can handle.
This abundant growth of fungi leads to an infection. Different types of fungi lead to different kinds of infection. Depending on the type of fungi and whereabouts on the body the infection occurs will determine the affliction - be it oral thrush, athlete's foot or jock itch.
Similarly to bacteria, fungi can become resistant to antifungal treatments if they are overused, though this issue is not as widespread as antibacterial resistance. If you experience a repeat recurrence of fungal skin infections, such as athlete's foot, it might be worth speaking to your doctor about preventative measures to keep you from becoming infected, rather than using antifungal treatments for long periods of time.
Fungal skin infections are relatively common and affect between 5% and 25% of the population, with athlete's foot being the most prevalent fungal infection. While they are relatively easy to treat, there is no vaccine against fungal infections, which mean that it is possible to be re-infected. If you regularly experience fungal infections, speak to your doctor - they will be able to offer the most suitable guidance for you.
Terbinafine cream is typically used for mild skin infections while the tablets are generally reserved for more complex infections, or when the infection has spread to different parts of the body.
For example, if two or more nails are infected with a tinea infection, a 4 to 8 week course of Terbinafine tablets may be prescribed to clear the infection instead of a cream.
Terbinafine is the name of the active ingredient in both the antifungal cream and tablets.
The active ingredient targets the cell membrane of the fungi.
The cell membrane is important for the survival of the fungus. They stop the cells' contents from leaking out and keep unwanted substances from invading the cells.
Terbinafine inhibits squalene epoxidase enzymes which are responsible for producing ergosterol. It is believed that the increased amount of squalene increases the permeability of the cell wall, breaking the cell membrane down.
By breaking apart the cell membrane, the contents of the cell spills out thus killing the fungi and clearing the infection.
Terbinafine cream needs to be used for a number of weeks in order to rid fungal infections. Your infection may not clear fully until a number of weeks after finishing treatment with Terbinafine. How long you will need to use the cream for, and the rate of recovery, will be dependent on the particular infection you have.
Terbinafine 250mg tablets should be taken for a number of weeks. The tablets are more effective at treating fungal infections which have spread to other parts of the body. Similarly, how long you will need to take the tablets for will depend on the spread of the infection.
Terbinafine is available as oral tablets or a topical cream.
When using Terbinafine cream, take care not to get any of the cream in your mouth, eyes or nose. If you do, rinse the area thoroughly with soap and water.
Take one 250mg Terbinafine tablet once daily.
You should swallow the tablet whole with a glass of water. Terbinafine tablets can be taken with or without food.
Aim to take the tablet at the same time every day. If you have trouble remembering when to take your medicine, set a reminder on your phone or home smart device if you have one.
Your doctor will let you know how much Terbinafine cream you should use and how long you should use it for. This will normally be one or two weeks for jock itch or ringworm, one week for athlete's foot and two weeks for candidiasis or pityriasis.
Likewise, your doctor will tell you how long you will need to take Terbinafine tablets for. For general skin infections, Terbinafine tablets are usually taken for 4 weeks. Infections of the groin, such as jock itch, may require 2 to 4 weeks of treatment. Nail infections may require considerably longer courses of treatment - between 6 weeks and 6 months.
It's essential to complete the whole course of treatment even if your symptoms clear up. If you stop prematurely, you risk having your infection come back. Infections typically start improving in a few days after starting to use Terbinafine cream; however, they could reappear if you don't apply the cream regularly or if you stop using it too early. Results may not be seen until after a few weeks of taking Terbinafine tablets.
Terbinafine cream and tablets are generally well tolerated. However, check with your doctor before taking Terbinafine if you are pregnant or think you're pregnant or if you're breastfeeding.

If your doctor tells you it's okay to take Terbinafine cream along with your other medications, if you have to use another topical medication on the same skin area, it's best to wait for a few minutes before you apply the second medication. This will give each medication time to absorb and will avoid them diluting on your skin or mixing together.
If you are pregnant, think you might be pregnant or breastfeeding, do not buy Terbinafine online. Speak to your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Do not use more Terbinafine to make up for the dose you missed. Using more Terbinafine than you should can increase your risk of side effects.
If you think you've taken too much Terbinafine, go to the emergency room right away or contact a poison control centre.
You should avoid the consumption of alcohol while you're taking Terbinafine. Consuming alcohol daily can raise your risk of severe side effects. Discuss this potential interaction with your doctor.
You should be able to drink alcohol 1 week after taking your last dose of Terbinafine. You should speak to your doctor for further advice.

For fungal skin infections, Terbinafine is usually taken for a considerably shorter time of between 2 and 6 weeks.
