|im nervous (part 2)
Dec 15, 2007
as i went to sleep i realized i should have mention about two weeks ago i started taking "lamisil" for my toe nails which look awful. my insurance company finaly approved the medicine after being turned down twice. my hiv specalist and my podiatrist agreed that i was a perfect candidate for lamisil. starting last monday this terriable diaheria began.is it possible its a side efect from the lamisil.just read peole with bad immunie systems tend to have problems with lamisil .side effects can be a bad rash stomach problems,bad taste in the mouth.it can reduce your white blood cell count.i guess i wont know until i get my blod work done. but im thinking about discontinuing the lamisil until i know whats going on???

Thanks for your follow up,
It is entirely possible that your simply experiencing a side effect of your new medication- namely the Lamisil.
I don't recommend stopping medications without doctor's supervision, but in this case it seems reasonable. In either event, make sure to let your doctor know about your symptoms and the action that you've taken to address the situation.
