Comments from related studies:
From this study (5 days ago):
Does Lamisil interact with Cymbalta or Cialis? I started feeling depressed, apathetic, fatigued and had problems with insomnia since I started taking the Lamisil. The Cymbalta seemed to numb me psychologically and cause impotence and absence of orgasm with sex after just 2 days. I stopped taking Cymbalta. Thanks, Rick
From this study (4 weeks ago):
Pain started after taking Lamisil and now 2 years later rapid loss of cartilage of hips
From this study (1 month ago):
Irrational behaviour,during conversation and fantasising upon events that did not take place
From this study (1 month ago):
In 2010, during pregnancy I deveoped foot fungal infection; I had a Caesarean section and afterwords fungal infection got worsen (maybe because of antibiotics).
In January 2012, I had Cardiolipin Antibody (only IgM) Positive (severity level - High). We don't know what caused it (I have not any autoimmune disease and I have no history of abortions).
I checked after 6 months and it was negative. It was negative for 6 months. Less than a month ago I started drugs for fungal foot skin infection.When I checked the Cardiolipin Antibodies, IgM was positive 19 (norm 10)and IgG was negative.
From this study (2 months ago):
I was not told by doctor or pharmacist or drug description received that loss of taste was possible with terbinafine.
Loss of taste ocurred 45 - 50 days after starting 250 mg per day for a toe infection - started off as athletes foot then progressed as fungal infection into toe nails as well.
It has been very depressing to lose my sense of taste.
Weight loss has ocurred .

I was taking Tetbinafine 250mg once daily. After 49 days of taking the medication my taste was almost gone. I came off the medication immediately. It has now been 3 weeks and one day without the medicine and still a long way to go. I have lost approximately 10 pounds from not eating and not very pleasant to be around. One of the most irritating parts is when you go to swallow and you feel the food in the back of the throat going down.(it feels awful feeling texture with no flavor) a soft drink taste like pure carbonated water. Now I get a salty taste in my mouth during my day..or after I drink water..(strange)maybe that's good? I was told from the manufacture it could take 2 to 6 weeks. It may have improved a little, not really sure. I was told it would gradually come back so?? If anyone can give me some hope or insight please respond...

I started taking terbinafine over 5 weeks ago, i only took 18 tablets overall and approx 3 weeks later noticed my taste had changed so i stopped taking them. Its been nearly two weeks now and still not got any taste. Did your come back?
Ron on Oct, 3, 2012:
The taste has finally returned...After discontinuing lamisil it then took about 5 weeks when I first noticed an improvement. It then very very slowly improved over the next 7 weeks. It will be week 13 in about two days since stopping the med and everything is almost normal. I say almost because I don't think its 100% but maybe like 95% back to the way it was and have no doubt that it will be back..I was able to start putting weight back on at about week 6 or 7. Food wasn't right but improved enough for me to eat better compared to the way it was..The process was so slow once it started improving that for a while from week to week when someone asked if it was better from the previous week, I would say I think it is. But eventually it was more noticeable...if you start having a salty and or bitter/funny taste in your mouth that's probably a sign that somethings changing...Thank God it does come back...I will never take this medicine again....it ruined me and my familys summer...feel free to ask me a question if u are experiencing anything...I know it gave me hope when someone responded to my questions...its like having a rare sickness...

I was on lamisil for 14 days in August for ringworn. Three weeks after I had finished the medicine, I noticed food was tasting bland. In less than a week, most of the sense of taste was gone. It can be very stressful. It has now been a month since this first started. I have been taking zinc regularly for a few weeks and have noticed a little improvement. Hopefully it will be fully returned. I, too, think the percentage of people with this side effect is grossly underreported. Hearing about other people who's taste has returned gives me hope. I pray every day that I am one of the lucky ones.

After suffering fungal pneumonia + fungal skin leasions + fungal bone infections (resulting in amputations) for the last 11yrs. I could care less about taste, I just do Not want the fungal growth. Please, if your infection is minor relish in the knowing that Taste will eventually return. After taking multiple fungal drugs (Sporanox, flucozinale, diflucan) this is the only agent that helps me to control the fungal growths. (Black mold in home post flood - was how I was infected, i.e., exposure).

I have been taking Lamisil for like a week now and on the 6th day I experienced this very bad abdominal cramp. It felt worse than one of those menstural cramps.. I don't know what to do now.. I think I will stop taking it even though I want my healthy nails again, I don't think it's worth it for me to feel miserable!! Other side effects I have experienced is: chills in the afternoon time, feeling very tired, and of course loosing the taste in my mouth. Any help appreciated. thank you.
Deb Smith on Feb, 18, 2013:
Hello, did your taste improve to a 100%? How long did it take? I've taken the meds for 5 weeks, and lost my sense of taste completely. It's been 1.5 weeks since I stopped the meds, and taste is still not back. Is there hope out there? Were the doctors able to help or did you just need to wait it out?
Doc ForthePeople on Feb, 22, 2013:
dO YOU KNOW WHICH MOLD/FUNGUS CAUSED THE INFECTION?
Robin on Feb, 25, 2013:
I only took the medicine for two weeks. My taste did come back %100 but it took about two months. I think the longer you are on it, the longer it takes to come back. Good luck!

42 year old female with no medical conditions other than toenail infection prescribed Terbafine 250mg x1 per day for 90 days, 40 days in I thought I had burned my tongue but turned out the loss of taste was due to this med. No taste what-so-ever. Only been off the med for 1 week today and after reading tons of material where it looks like it could be weeks, months or maybe never sad to say that this is the most depressing thing that has ever happened to me. Weight loss is happening due to loss of interest in eating what I can't taste, so basically making sure to hit nutritional requirements but that is about it. Amazing how we humans celebrate our lives through food. No birthday dinner or cake-why? Can't taste it anyway, would just make me more sad.
