Lamisil is a prescription medication used to treat fungal infections of the toe and/or fingernails. Lamisil is available in both topical and tablet form. While adverse health affects have not been found with Lamisil cream or solution, serious cases of liver damage have been associated with Lamisil tablets.
May 2001, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a Public Health Advisory warning patients about the potential dangers associated with Lamisil tablets. Prior to that, 16 cases of serious liver damage, including 11 deaths and two transplants, had been reported among patients using Lamisil. While the FDA has not recalled Lamisil, they have urged doctors to screen potential patients more carefully and to run special tests to ensure a prescription fungal medication like Lamisil is necessary.
