Patient Comments: Fungal Nails - Prevention

If you've had a toenail fungus, how do you try to prevent it from recurring?

Comment from: Mjwr2004, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: September 08

Use Lamisil 250 mg orally to prevent toenail fungus from recurring. This medicine requires prior authorization, thereby, the doctor has to call the insurance carrier for approval/authorization and then call the pharmacy with the authorization number.
