It is important to note that terbinafine is metabolized by the hepatic cytochrome P450 system, thus plasma levels of terbinafine may be affected by other drugs. For example, rifampin and phenobarbital induce these enzymes, so there will be increased clearance of terbinafine (Breckenridge 1992). In contrast, cimetidine inhibits this system, so there will be increased concentrations of terbinafine (Back and Tjia 1991). It should be noted that terbinafine therapy is safer than itraconazole for diabetics.

Advantages of the PCR technique are that results show the presence or absence of fungi, the identification of the species, and give rapid test results. It has the disadvantage of being a costlier technique and cannot unquestionably assess the viability of the organism. Confocal Microscopy The reflectance confocal microscopy technique utilizes an 830-nm laser in reflectance mode to generate horizontal sections of different depths from the surface of the nail plate down to the nail bed. Data analysis and software are then employed to generate images of the nail plate and identify the species, based on morphological characteristics.
