Have you used Lamisil for toenail fungus?

I'm part way through this very pricey prescription. It seems to be working...slowly. My podiatrist said that many times it doesn't even work, and you just have to live with it. Has anyone been totally successful in banishing toenail fungus forever?Have you used Lamisil for toenail fungus?
I had toenail fungus treated about 10 years ago and it has not come back. These medications do work, however, take a long time to work as the fungus is imbedded into the nail bed where the nail grows. The fungus is also incorporated into the matrix of the nail and needs to grow out.

Usually a course of treatment is to take it for 1 week for the month for 4 months or taking it continuously for 12 weeks. Make sure you have your liver function monitored as there are sometimes side effects.
