LOCERYL contains the active ingredient amorolfine. It is used to treat fungal infections of the nails. LOCERYL belongs to a family of medicines called anti-fungal drugs. These medicines work by killing a wide variety of fungi that can cause nail infections.
If you are not sure if you should start using LOCERYL, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
The safety and effectiveness of LOCERYL in children have not been established.
LOCERYL is intended for external use only. LOCERYL should not be swallowed.
NOTE: Follow these steps each time you use Loceryl.
Paint LOCERYL once or twice weekly on the infected fingernails or toenails or as otherwise directed by your doctor or pharmacist.
If you forget to paint on the LOCERYL nail lacquer, use it as soon as you remember. Then go back to using LOCERYL as you would normally.
Treatment should be continued until the infected nails are completely cured and re-grown.
Usually, treatment of fungal infections of the nails takes around six months for the fingernails and nine to twelve months for the toenails.
Don't be discouraged if after several weeks of therapy no improvement is visible. A healthy nail only grows by approximately 2mm per month.
Immediately telephone your doctor or Poisons Information Centre for advice or go to Accident and Emergency at your nearest hospital if you think that you or anyone else may have swallowed LOCERYL, even if there are no signs of discomfort or poisoning. You may need urgent medical attention.
If you are about to be started on a new medicine, tell your doctor and pharmacist that you are using LOCERYL.
If you work with solvents (eg paint thinner, turpentine substitute, petrol, paraffin etc), wear
gloves to protect the coat of nail lacquer on your fingernails.
Do not use nail files for infected nails on healthy nails.
Do not use artificial nails during treatment with LOCERYL.
Do not apply cosmetic nail varnish or other medication(s) on the nail(s) being treated.
Do not give LOCERYL to anyone else to use, even if they have the same condition as you.
Do not use LOCERYL to treat other complaints unless your doctor says to.
Take care that LOCERYL does not come into contact with the skin.
All medicines can have side effects. LOCERYL helps most people with fungal infections of the nails but it may have unwanted side effects in a few people.
Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you notice any of the following and they worry you:
Do not be alarmed by these possible side effects. You may not experience any of them.
Screw the bottle top of the LOCERYL nail lacquer tightly immediately after use.
Keep LOCERYL in a cool dry place where the temperature stays below 30°C. Heat and
dampness can destroy some medicines.
Do not store it, or any other medicine, in a bathroom or near a sink.
Do not leave it in the car or on window sills.
Keep LOCERYL where young children cannot reach it. A locked cupboard at least one-and-a-half metres above the ground is a good place to store medicines.
