Tarbinafine advice please

Posted , 1 user is following.

Hi all,im looking for some advice.

I was diagnosed with palmoplantar pustulosis psoriasis on my left foot (yep just my left one,how weird) about 1 year ago and was prescribed a steroid cream for it.

It has never cleared up really just slightly improved.

Anyway my big toenail started going bumpy,misshapen and discoloured a few months back an i just assumed it was also the psoriasis effecting it untill a fortnight ago i went to the GP's and she said it looked fungal and i had to send a clipping off to get it tested (minging)

It came back as positive as fungal nail and the GP has today prescribed me Tarbinafine tablets 250mg and said i need to take them for 6-9 months

He told me i could go away and think about it as my Liver would have to be monitored regularly with blood tests (ive never had any problems with my liver before)

Ive been googling the medication and am not seeing very good reviews,has anyone got any advice for me PLEASE????
