TERBICIP 250 contains Terbinafine which belongs to Antifungal agents, used to treat fungal infections of the skin and nails.
It acts by attacking and killing fungus which causes infection. This medicine has a broad spectrum of antifungal activity.
At low concentrations it is fungicidal against dermatophytes, molds and certain dimorphic fungi. Terbinafine interferes with the production of ergosterol and causes a buildup of another substance called squalene in the fungal cell.
This leads to a deficiency in ergosterol and to an intracellular accumulation of squalene, resulting in fungal cell death. Both actions cause the death of the fungus and elimination of the infection.
Always take as prescribed by your doctor. Before taking this TERBICIP 250, inform your doctor if you are allergic to antibiotics or having kidney or liver problems and if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
It is not recommended for use in children.
Do not drive or operate any machines while taking this medicine as it may cause dizziness or fatigue. The common side effects are headache, rash and diarrhoea.
