Is the cost of the drug expensive?

Here is the some steps to help you to save money on Terbifin purchase.


Read drug prescription

infoIt is very important to know about what medicine is given by the doctor, for what condition, and when it needs to be taken in what dose. This information given by the doctor is called Prescription. The patients should be familiar with the medicine prescription, and the details about the medicine before purchasing it and using it. Some medications need not be prescribed by healthcare practitioners and can be purchased and used without prescription by the patients; these are called over-the-counter medications. Read the drug prescription information of Terbifin before taking it.

What is Terbifin

Treating certain fungal infections of the fingernails or toenails. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.
Terbifin is an antifungal agent. It works by killing sensitive fungi.

Important safety information:

  • If you experience dizziness while taking Terbifin, use caution. Do not drive or perform other possibly unsafe tasks.
  • Terbifin only works against fungal infections; it does not treat bacterial or viral infections.
  • Do NOT take more than the recommended dose or use for longer than prescribed without checking with your doctor.
  • Be sure to use Terbifin for the full course of treatment. If you do not, the medicine may not clear up your infection completely. The fungus could also become less sensitive to this or other medicines. This could make the infection harder to treat in the future.
  • Very bad skin reactions (eg, Stevens-Johnson syndrome/toxic epidermal necrolysis) that include skin rash with or without liver, lung, kidney, and/or heart problems have occurred in patients taking Terbifin. These reactions can cause very bad health problems that may not go away and sometimes death. Get medical help right away if you have red, swollen, blistered, or peeling skin; fever; red or irritated eyes; sores in your mouth, throat, nose, or eyes; or swollen lymph glands (with or without other unusual side effects).
  • Terbifin may lower the ability of your body to fight infection. Tell your doctor if you notice signs of infection like fever, sore throat, rash, or chills.
  • Tell your doctor or dentist that you take Terbifin before you receive any medical or dental care, emergency care, or surgery.
  • Before using Terbifin, tell your doctor if you take a medicine that contains caffeine or if you consume large amounts of food or drink that contain caffeine (eg, coffee, tea, cocoa, cola, chocolate).
  • Taste changes (eg, taste loss) or changes in smell (eg, loss of smell) have been reported in patients taking Terbifin. These effects may resolve after you stop taking Terbifin, but may last for a long time (eg, more than 1 year), or may become permanent. Tell your doctor right away if you experience changes in smell, taste changes, poor appetite, unwanted weight loss, anxiety, or mood changes (eg, symptoms of depression).
  • Terbifin may cause you to become sunburned more easily. Avoid the sun, sunlamps, or tanning booths until you know how you react to Terbifin. Use a sunscreen or wear protective clothing if you must be outside for more than a short time.
  • Rarely, Terbifin may cause severe or even fatal liver problems. If liver problems occur, they may be more severe in patients who have other active liver problems or a history of long-term liver problems. Discuss any questions or concerns with your doctor.
  • The nail lacquer is for external use only. Do not get it in your eyes, nose, or mouth. If you get it in any of these areas, rinse right away with cool water.
  • You may apply nail polish on top of the nail lacquer.
  • Unless you are washing your hands, use gloves while using water or chemical substances to avoid accidentally washing the nail lacquer off. Wearing cotton under the gloves is preferred.
  • The nail lacquer is flammable. Do not store or use near an open flame or while smoking.
  • Lab tests, including liver function and complete blood cell counts, may be performed while you use Terbifin. These tests may be used to monitor your condition or check for side effects. Be sure to keep all doctor and lab appointments.
  • Terbifin should be used with extreme caution in CHILDREN; safety and effectiveness in children have not been confirmed.
  • PREGNANCY and BREAST-FEEDING: It is not known if Terbifin can cause harm to the fetus. Do not start taking Terbifin during pregnancy without talking with your doctor. If you think you may be pregnant, contact your doctor right away. You will need to discuss the benefits and risks of using Terbifin while you are pregnant. Terbifin is found in breast milk.

    Select the most affordable brand or generic drug

    infoGeneric drug is the basic drug with an active substance in it, and the name of the generic drug is same as active substance most of the times. Like Acetaminophen/Paracetemol is Generic name and it has different brand names like Tylenol, Acimol, Crocin, Calpol etc. All these Brand names contain the same Paracetemol, but the medications are manufactured by different companies, so the different brand names. Generic drug is always cheaper and affordable, and it can be replaced in place of brand name drug prescribed by the healthcare practitioner. The Generic medicine has same properties as branded medicine in terms of uses, indications, doses, side effects, so no need to worry on that. Just select the most affordable generic or branded medicine.
