How to use amorolfine nail lacquer

Apply amorolfine 5% nail lacquer to the affected finger or toenails once or twice a week and as directed by your doctor. You should file down the infected areas of nail, including on the nail surface and clean the area using the swabs provided. Once this is completed, you apply the nail lacquer evenly over the entire surface of the nail. Leave the treated nail or nails to dry for approximately 3 minutes and wait at least 10 minutes before applying cosmetic nail varnish. 

How does amorolfine work? 

Amorolfine is a medicated nail lacquer, belonging to a group of medicines known as antifungals. It works to eliminate a broad spectrum of fungi responsible for nail infections.

How effective is amorolfine?  

Amorolfine has a high success rate when used correctly. A clinical study reported that amorolfine had a 90% success rate of curing nail infections after 40 weeks of use. 

What is the treatment timeline?  

1 to 3 months

Using amorolfine once a week as directed, will allow the active ingredient to penetrate the surface nail allowing it being treating and killing the fungus. 

3 to 6 months

As treatment continues, you may start to see the growth of the healthy nail below. Continuous use of the treatment as directed will allow the new nail to grow back properly and reduce the risk of re-infection. 

6 to 9 months

Continued use of amorolfine for this time period will improve the condition of the new nail as it grows. You will now notice the infected nail growing out. The discolouration and thickness should also now be decreasing as the new, healthy nail replaces the old one. 

9 to 12 months 

The infected area should now have completely gone and replaced with a new healthier nail. This process is usually quicker when treating fingernails.

Amorolfine dosage instructions

You should apply amorolfine to the affected finger or toenails once or twice a week. It’s important to remember to use the treatment consistently, for the best results.

How long is the usual treatment course of amorolfine for a fingernail infection? 

It is crucial to continue using Amorolfine 5% w/v until the infection has cleared and healthy nails have grown back. This usually takes 6 months for fingernails and 9 to 12 months for toenails. You should see your GP if your fungal nail infection is so severe, and treatment has not worked, or the infection has spread to other nails.

What if you forget to use amorolfine 5%? 

If you forget to apply the lacquer to your nails at the right time, begin using the product again, in the same way as before as soon as you remember.

Can I stop using amorolfine? 

Your infection could come back if you stop using the treatment before your doctor tells you to do so. The best course of action is to speak to your doctor or pharmacist if you have any concerns.

Amorolfine 5% Nail Lacquer
The pack contains everything required to treat the infection so does appear to be great value for money. As it can take 6-months to a year to treat the infection I have no idea how good this product is. After a month, there does not appear to be any change, the information leaflet states it can take 3-months before any improvement is visualised.

I can't really say as I have only just started using the product and it will take months before its full effects will be manifest, but it is very easy to use.
