Sebifin 250 mg contains the active substance Terbinafine hydrochloride, a class of medicines known as antifungals. It treats fungal infections of the fingernails and toenails. Your doctor will perform certain tests to check you for fungal infections of your nails before you start a Terbinafine formulation. Sebifin 250 tablets effectively treat fungal infections of the nail and may be used for certain skin infections caused by a fungus that does not respond to topical treatment. Book an appointment with a doctor to confirm which type of fungal skin infection you have. Your doctor will decide if this antifungal agent is the right medicine for you. The treatment should begin only under a doctor’s supervision. Some symptoms of infection may still be remaining at the end of the treatment. This will gradually diminish with the continuous use of this antifungal drug as prescribed by the doctor. Terbinafine, the active constituent of the drug, is believed to interfere with the production of a substance called ergosterol that the fungus requires to grow and causes a build-up of another substance in the cells. Both these activities ultimately lead to the death of the fungus, and thus elimination of infection takes place.
To help clear your infection completely, keep taking Sebifin 250 tablets for the prescribed time, even if your symptoms begin to reside or you begin to feel better. Follow your doctor’s advice while taking Sebifin 250.
