Has anyone experience hair loss with this product? I've see this side effect mentioned in other forums but no one has mentioned it on this website, despite a slew of other negative effects mentioned
I did not lose hair. Because of the concern for liver damage, I had blood tests regularly while taking terbafine. Good Luck, Patsy
Yes! Please don't take this medication unless you have no other choice. My hair loss is so disturbing. It has drastically effected my quality of life. I would give anything to go back in time and not take this med. I took it for 9 weeks and I've been off it for nearly 5 weeks. I am still losing 4x my normal amount of hair daily. I had other side effects too. Please consider an alternate treatment and if you do take this medication I pray you do not have this happen to you. It is one of the worst things imaginable.
I was taking it for weeks. I'm losing alarming amounts of hair right now. I don't know if its from the terbinafine or not but it's the only thing that makes sense. I stopped taking it when I started seeing blood when I went to the bathroom. I've been off it for two weeks. The stuff made me feel aweful.
Yes, I definitely have experienced hair loss from taking Terbinafine for the past 5 weeks ... my hairbrush is suddenly pulling out an unusual amount of hair. I'll be glad to finish my prescription (for fingernail fungus) in one more week!
I took Terbinafine for 12 weeks last fall for toenail fungus. My hair starting falling out around the first of this year. Found a study that stated this med "concentrates highest in the sebum and hair, with quantifiable concentrations 56-90 days after a final oral dose and a slow distribution from the peripheral sites back to the central plasma compartment... " Not sure what that means but my hair started falling out like crazy during that time. My hair loss continues 4 months later but has slowed. I have bald spots/receding near my temples and my hair is finer as if the follicles are blocked and smaller. My toenail is healed, but I agree, this is traumatizing!
