Zabel Drug Information
Zabel (generic name: terbinafine; brand names include: Tebina / Terbisil / Zabel) offers effective treatment for mild to severe nail fungus infection (including jock itch, athlete's foot and ringworm): high cure rates with low relapse, an established safety record, and convenient once-a-day dosing.
Zabel is one of the most prescribed treatment for nail fungus infection worldwide. Since 1996, healthcare professionals have prescribed Zabel to more than 17 million people in the U.S.
Zabel tablets are an FDA-approved pill.
Zabel works by stopping the growth of fungi. Unlike surface treatments that you may have tried, Zabel works through the bloodstream to target the infection where it lives, deep under the nail. When you take Zabel, the active ingredient, terbinafine, travels to the infected area under the toenail or fingernail. Because terbinafine accumulates and remains in the area of the nail that is growing, it can continue to work for months, even after your prescription is finished, allowing the nail to heal naturally over a period of time.
