Lamisil Once (Terbinafine)
Lamisil Once is a new formulation of the former drug Lamisil (terbinafine) for local treatment of interdigital athletes foot. Lamisil Once differs from former marketed formulations of terbinafine because it only has to be applicated once on both feet. The effect is assumed equal to lotion containing terbinafine once a day in 7 days. Lamisil Once can be sold without a prescription, and therefore the price fluctuates. The manufacturer’s guiding price is 94,94DKR, which is 30-60 % more than other formulations of terbinafine.
IRF states, that Lamisil Once is a good alternative to patients with interdigital athlete’s foot that prefer a simpler dispensing.
Lamisil Once was marketed the 6th of November 2006. The drug is under the rules of general reimbursement to senior citizens and in skin infections caused by fungus (microscopy or culture verified).
