No such possible side effect listed nor reported.
Gastrointestinal side effects have included diarrhea (5.6%), dyspepsia (4.3%), taste disturbance (2.8%), nausea (2.6%), abdominal pain (2.4%), and flatulence (2.2%). Mild to moderate gastrointestinal discomfort, gastritis, gastric fullness, nausea and vomiting, taste alteration (rarely accompanied by discoloration of the tongue and/or disturbance in the sense of smell), hypogeusia, ageusia, and a metallic taste have been reported. At least one case of a drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms associated with severe sialadenitis induced by terbinafine has been reported. Vomiting and pancreatitis have been reported during postmarketing experience.
Patients with hiatal hernia or gastric duodenal ulcer disease may be more likely to experience mild to moderate gastrointestinal discomfort, diarrhea, dyspepsia, nausea and vomiting, gastritis, gastric fullness, and flatulence.
Taste disturbances were typically noticed 5 to 8 weeks after starting therapy and returned to normal 2 to 5 weeks after stopping the medication. The taste alteration has been rarely accompanied by a discoloration of the tongue and/or a disturbance in the sense of smell.
An 80-year-old female experienced a drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS) secondary to severe sialadenitis coincident with terbinafine therapy. The patient was admitted with a generalized pruriginous eruption. She presented with erythematous and edematous widespread confluent plaques, with a scaly annular border. She had initiated terbinafine therapy 14 days before onset of the generalized rash, for a nonspecific squamous plaque of the trunk. DRESS induced by terbinafine was diagnosed and terbinafine intake was discontinued. Topical therapy was started with 0.5% clobetasol propionate cream applied to the whole body. The rash progressively improved and blood eosinophilia decreased.
