If patients follow their doctors’ prescription, Lamisil is a good antifungal medication. It is used to treat fungal infections of the body, fingernails and groin, according to Mayo Clinic.
Some patients who take Lamisil have experienced severe liver damage, but it is not clear whether this medication is the cause of this condition. Pregnant and breast-feeding mothers and those allergic to Lamisil should abstain from this medication, notes Drugs.com.
Before taking Lamisil, patients should tell their doctors if they have conditions such as liver disease, a weak immune system or a history of depression. This allows doctors to determine the safety of their patients while taking this medication, reports Drugs.com.
