Terbicip 250 mg
Terbicip is used to treat fungal infections of the skin, which includes the treatment of tinea corporis, tinea cruris, tinea pedis, and yeast infections of the skin caused by the genus Candida where oral therapy is generally considered appropriate, owing to the site, severity or extent of the infection. Terbicip is also used to treat infections caused by Tinea capitis and Onychomycosis (fungal infection of the nails) caused by dermatophyte fungi. The active ingredient present in Terbicip is Terbinafine Hydrochloride.
The recommended dosage of Terbicip for adults is One tablet of Terbicip 250 mg once a day. The length of treatment varies according to the type of infection and the severity of the infection.
You should take Terbicip at the same time every day or you would otherwise have peaks with high or low levels of the medication in your body. This way you obtain the highest efficiency of the medication and maintain a constant level of the active ingredient being absorbed into your body and blood stream. You are also likely to experience less potential side effects. If you forget to take your medicine then take it as soon as possible. However, skip the forgotten dosage if it is almost time for your next normally scheduled dose as you should never take a double dose of Terbicip even if you forget to take your medication for several days. Taking a double dose or taking two doses within a short period of time may increase side effects and other health risks while there are no increased benefits. Terbicip is usually taken once daily for 6 to 12 weeks. Take the tablet with a full glass of water.
Terbicip is contraindicated in individuals with hypersensitivity to Terbinafine HCl or to any inactive ingredients of the medication.
