Alivio®

Terbinafine Hydrochloride

Description:
Terbinafine hydrochloride (Alivio®) is a synthetic allylamine antifungal. It is highly lipophilic in nature and tends to accumulate in skin, nails, and fatty tissues. Like other allylamines, terbinafine inhibits ergosterol synthesis by inhibiting the fungal squalene monooxygenase (squalene 2,3-epoxidase), an enzyme that is part of the fungal cell wall synthesis pathway.

Indication
Fungal infections of the skin caused by dermatophytes such as Trichophyton rubrum, Tricophyton mentagrophytes, Mychrosporum canis and Epidermophyton floccosum.

• Onychomycosis of the toenail or fingernail due to dermatophytes
• Ringworm (Tinea corporis, Tinea cruris and Tinea pedis) where oral therapy is considered appropriate due to the site, severity or extent of the infection.
