Is Lamisil Safe?

Many patients are concerned about the safety of Lamisil. In some patients, it can cause severe side effects. To avoid these, it is important to let your doctor know if you have any liver or kidney problems. You should also let your doctor know if you have a history of depression or autoimmune disease such as lupus. It is also important to tell your doctor about any prescription or over-the-counter medications you may be taking, including herbal supplements. Some medications and supplements can cause dangerous drug interactions when taken with Lamisil.
