Effect of terbinafine on other medicinal products
Terbinafine may increase the effect or plasma concentration of the following medicinal products:

Caffeine: Terbinafine decreased the clearance of caffeine administered intravenously by 21%.

Compounds predominantly metabolised by CYP2D6: In vitro and in vivo studies have shown that terbinafine inhibits the CYP2D6-mediated metabolism.  This finding may be of clinical relevance for patients receiving compounds predominantly metabolised by CYP2D6 e.g. certain members of the following drug classes, tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs), beta-blockers, selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs), antiarrhythmics (including class 1A, 1B and 1C) and monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MOA MAO-Is) Type B, especially if they also have a narrow therapeutic window (see section 4.4).

 

4.8 Undesirable effects 

Adverse effects are generally mild to moderate in severity and transient.
The following adverse reactions have been observed in the clinical trials or during post marketing experience.

 Anxiety and depressive symptoms secondary to dysgeusia.
 Can persist for a long period (up to 2 years)
Hypogeusia, including ageusia, which usually recover within several weeks after discontinuation of the drug. Isolated cases of prolonged hypogeusia have been reported.

2. QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE COMPOSITION

Each tablet contains terbinafine hydrochloride, equivalent to 250 mg terbinafine.

For a the full list of excipients, see section 6.1.

4. CLINICAL PARTICULARS

4.1 Therapeutic Indications

1. Treatment of terbinafine sensitive fungal infections such as Tinea corporis, Tinea cruris and Tinea pedis (caused by Dermatophytes see Section section 5.1) where oral therapy is considered appropriate due to the site, severity or extent of the infection.
2. The treatment of onychomycosis (terbinafine-sensitive fungal infection of the nails) caused by dermatophytes.

4.2 Posology and method of administration

Route of administration:

Oral use
Posology
The duration of treatment is dependant on the indication and the degree of severity of the infection.

Adults
250mg once daily.
The duration of treatment is dependent on the indication and the degree of severity of the infection.

Additional information on special populations

Children and Adolescents Paediatric population (0-17 years)
There is limited experience with oral terbinafine in children and adolescents and therefore its use cannot be recommended.

Liver impairment
Terbinafine tablets are not recommended contraindicated for patients with chronic or active hepatic disease (see section sections 4.3 and 4.4).

Renal impairment
Use of terbinafine tablets has not been adequately studied in patients with renal impairment and is therefore not recommended in this population (see sections 4.3, 4.4 and section 5.2).

Elderly
There is no evidence to suggest that elderly patients (aged 65 years or above) require different dosages or experience different side effects than younger patients. When prescribing terbinafine tablets for patients in this age group, the possibility of pre-existing impairment of hepatic or kidney function should be considered (see section 4.4).

Method of administration

For oral use
The tablets are to be taken with water. They should preferably be taken at the same time each day and can be taken on an empty stomach or after a meal.


4.3 Contraindications

Hypersensitivity to terbinafine the active substance or to any of the excipients listed in section 6.1.
Severe renal impairment.
Severe hepatic impairmentChronic or active hepatic disease.

4.4 Special warnings and precautions for use

Liver function
Terbinafine tablets are not recommendedcontraindicated for patients with chronic or active hepatic disease.

Single dose pharmacokinetic studies in patients with pre-existing liver disease have shown that the clearance of terbinafine can be reduced by 50% (see section 5.2).

Before prescribing terbinafine tablets, liver function test should be performed and any pre-existing liver disease should be assessed.

Single dose pharmacokinetic studies in patients with pre-existing liver disease have shown that the clearance of terbinafine can be reduced by 50% (see section 5.2).

Hepatotoxicity may occur in patients with and without pre-existing hepatic disease therefore periodic monitoring (after 4-6 weeks of treatment) of liver function test is recommended. Terbinafine should be immediately discontinued in case of elevation of liver function test.

Very rare cases of serious liver failure (some with a fatal outcome, or requiring liver transplant) have been reported in patients treated with terbinafine tablets. In the majority of hepatic failure cases the patients had serious underlying systemic conditions and a causal association with the intake of terbinafine tablets was uncertain (see section sections 4.3 and 4.8).

Haematological effects
Very rare cases of blood disorders (neutropenia, agranulocytosis, thrombocytopenia, pancytopenia and pancytopenia) have been reported in patients treated with terbinafine tablets. Aetiology of any blood disorders that occur in patients treated with terbinafine tablets should be evaluated and consideration should be given for a possible change in medication regimen, including discontinuation of treatment with terbinafine tablets.

Patients on terbinafine who develop a high fever or sore throat should be examined concerning possible haematological reactions.

Dermatological effects
Serious skin reactions (e.g. Stevens-Johnson syndrome, toxic epidermal necrolysis, drug rash with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms) have been very rarely reported in patients taking terbinafine tablets. If progressive skin rash occurs, terbinafine tablets treatment should be discontinued.

Terbinafine should be used with caution in patients with pre-existing psoriasis, as very rare cases of exacerbation of psoriasis have been reported.

Renal function
In patients with renal impairment (creatinine clearance less than 50 mL/min or serum creatinine of more than 300 micro mol/L) the use of terbinafine tablets has not been adequately studied, and therefore, is not recommended (see section 5.2).

Other
Terbinafine should be used with caution in patients with pre-existing psoriasis or lupus erythematosus as very rare cases of lupus erythematosus have been reported.

4.5        Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction 

 

Effect of other medicinal products on terbinafine


The following medicinal products may increase the effect or plasma concentration of Terbinafine terbinafine:
- Cimetidine decreased the clearance of terbinafine by 33 30%.
- Fluconazole increased the Cmax and AUC of terbinafine by 52% and 69% respectively, due to inhibition of both CYP2C9 and CYP3A4 enzymes. Similar increase in exposure may occur when other drugs which inhibit both CYP2C9 and CYP3A4 such as ketoconazole and amiodarone are concomitantly administered with terbinafine.

The following medicinal products may decrease the effect or plasma concentration of Terbinafine terbinafine:
- Rifampicin increased the clearance of terbinafine by 100%.

Effect of terbinafine on other medicinal products

Terbinafine may increase the effect or plasma concentration of the following medicinal products:

 

Caffeine: Terbinafine decreased the clearance of caffeine administered intravenously by 21%.

 

Compounds predominantly metabolised by CYP2D6: In vitro and in vivo studies have shown that terbinafine inhibits the CYP2D6-mediated metabolism.  This finding may be of clinical relevance for patients receiving compounds predominantly metabolised by CYP2D6 e.g. certain members of the following drug classes, tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs), beta-blockers, selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs), antiarrhythmics (including class 1A, 1B and 1C) and monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MOA-Is) Type B, especially if they also have a narrow therapeutic window (see section 4.4).

 

Terbinafine decreased the clearance of desipramine by 82%.

 

In studies in healthy subjects characterised as extensive metabolisers of dextromethorphan (antitussive drug and CYP2D6 probe substrate), terbinafine increased the dextromethorphan/ dextrorphan metabolic ratio in urine by 16- to 97-fold on average. Thus, terbinafine may convert extensive CYP2D6 metabolisers (genotype) to poor metaboliser (phenotype) status.

 

Information on other drugs concomitantly used with terbinafine resulting in no or negligible interactions

According to the results from studies undertaken in vitro and in healthy volunteers,

terbinafine shows negligible potential for inhibiting or enhancing the clearance of most drugs that are metabolised via the cytochrome P450 system (e.g. terfenadine, triazolam, tolbutamide or oral contraceptives) with exception of those metabolised through CYP2D6 (see below).

 

Terbinafine does not interfere with the clearance of antipyrine or digoxin.

 

There was no effect of terbinafine on the pharmacokinetics of fluconazole. Further there was no clinically relevant interaction between terbinafine and the potential comedications cotrimoxazole (trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole), zidovudine or theophylline.


Some cases of menstrual disturbance (breakthrough bleeding and irregular cycle)irregular menstruation have been reported in patients taking terbinafine tablets concomitantly with oral contraceptives, although the incidence of these disorders remains within the background incidence of patients taking oral contraceptives alone.

Terbinafine may increase the effect or plasma concentration of the following medicinal products:
- Caffeine: Terbinafine decreased the clearance of caffeine administered intravenously by 19%.
- Compounds predominantly metabolised by CYP2D6: In vitro and in vivo studies have shown, that terbinafine inhibits the CYP2D6-mediated metabolism. For this reason, it is important to monitor patients who are treated simultaneously with medicinal products that are predominantly metabolised by this enzyme, e.g. certain members of the following drug classes, tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs), beta-blockers, selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs), antiarrhythmics (including class 1A, 1B and 1C and monoamine oxidase inhibitors type B especially if they also have a narrow therapeutic window (see section 4.4).

- Terbinafine decreased the clearance of desipramine by 82%.


4.6 Fertility, pregnancy and lactation

Foetal toxicity and fertility studies in animals suggest no undesirable effects.
Pregnancy:
Foetal toxicity and fertility studies in animals suggest no adverse effects. Since clinical experience in pregnant women is very limited, terbinafine tablets should not be used during pregnancy unless clinical condition of the woman requires treatment with oral terbinafine and the potential benefits for the mother outweigh any potential risks for the foetus.

Breast-feeding:
Terbinafine is excreted in breast milk and therefore mothers should not receive treatment with terbinafine treatment whilst breast-feeding.

Fertility
Foetal toxicity and fertility studies in animals suggest no adverse effects.

5.         PHARMACOLOGICAL PROPERTIES

 

5.1        Pharmacodynamic properties 

 

Pharmacotherapeutic group: Dermatologicals; antifungals for systemic use

ATC code:D01BA02

 

Mechanism of action

Terbinafine is an allylamine which has a broad spectrum of antifungal activity. At low concentrations terbinafine is fungicidal against dermatophytes, moulds and certain dimorphic fungi. The activity versus yeasts is fungicidal or fungistatic depending on the species.

 

Terbinafine interferes specifically selectively with fungal sterol biosynthesis at an early stepstage through inhibition of the enzyme squalone opoxidase. This leads to a deficiency in ergosterol and to an intracellular accumulation of squalene, resulting in fungal cell death in the fungi cell membrane Terbinafine acts by inhibition of squalene epoxidase in the fungal cell membrane. Both the deficiency in ergosterol and the accumulation of squalene are responsible for fungal cell death The enzyme squalene epoxidase is not linked to the cytochrome P450 system.

5.2        Pharmacokinetic properties 

 

Absorption

Following oral administration, terbinafine is well absorbed (> 70 %) and the absolute bioavailability of terbinafine from tablets as a result of first-pass metabolism is approximately 50 %. A single oral dose of 250mg terbinafine resulted in mean peak plasma concentrations of 1.30mcg/ml within 1.5 hours after administration. The absorption half-life is 0.8 hours and the distribution half-life is 4.6 hours. Plasma concentrations decline in a triphasic manner, with a terminal half-life of 16.5 days. At 28 days, when around 70% steady state levels have been achieved, peak concentrations of terbinafine was on average 25% higher and plasma AUC increased by a factor of 2.3 when compared to single dose administration. From the increase in plasma AUC an effective half-life of ~ 30 hours can be calculated. The bioavailability of terbinafine is moderately affected by food (increase in the AUC of less than 20%), but not sufficiently to require dose adjustments.

 

Distribution

Terbinafine binds strongly to plasma proteins (99%). Terbinafine rapidly diffuses through the skin and concentrates in the lipophilic stratum corneum.

 

Terbinafine is also secreted in sebum, thus achieving high concentrations in hair follicles, hair and parts of the skin rich in sebaceous glands. There is also evidence that terbinafine is distributed into the nail plate within the first few weeks of commencing therapy.

 

Biotransformation

Terbinafine is metabolised rapidly and extensively by at least seven CYP-isoenzymes, with major contributions by CYP2C9, CYP1A2, CYP3A4, CYP2C8 and CYP2C19.   Biotransformation results in metabolites with no antifungal activity, which are excreted predominantly in the urine. The elimination half-life is 17 hours. There is no evidence of accumulation.

 

Other special populations

 

Elderly

No clinically-relevant age-dependent changes in pharmacokinetics have been observed but the elimination rate may be reduced in patients with renal or hepatic impairment, resulting in higher blood levels of terbinafine.

 

Effects in renal and hepatic impairment

Single dose pharmacokinetic studies in patients with renal impairment (creatinine clearance < 50 ml/min) or with pre-existing liver disease have shown that clearance of terbinafine may be reduced by about 50%.

 

In patients with pre-existing mild to severe hepatic impairment, single dose pharmacokinetic studies have shown that the clearance of terbinafine can be reduced by 50%.

The bioavailability of terbinafine is only slightly affected by food, and therefore a dose adjustment is not necessary.
 
 

5.3 Preclinical safety data

The approximate LD50 value of terbinafine is over 4 g/kg in both mice and rats.The approximate LD50 value of terbinafine is over 4 g/kg in both mice and rats.

In long-term studies (up to 1 year) in rats and dogs no marked toxic effects were seen in either species up to oral doses of about 100mg/kg a day. At high oral doses, the liver and possibly also the kidneys were identified as potential target organs.

In a two-year oral carcinogenicity study in mice, no neoplastic or other abnormal findings attributable to treatment were made up to doses of 130 (males) and 156 (females) mg/kg a day. In a two-year oral carcinogenicity study in rats, an increased incidence of liver tumours was observed in males at the highest dosage level of 69mg/kg a day., at which systemic exposure was similar to clinical exposure. The mechanism of tumour development has not been established. The clinical relevance is unknown., at which systemic exposure was similar to clinical exposure. The mechanism of tumour development has not been established. The clinical relevance is unknown. at which systemic exposure was similar to clinical exposure. The mechanism of tumour development has not been established. The clinical relevance is unknown. The changes, which may be associated with peroxisome proliferation have been shown to be species-specific since they were not seen in the carcinogenicity study in mice, dogs or monkeys.

During high-dose studies in monkeys, refractile irregularities were observed in the retina at the higher doses (non-toxic effect level 50mg/kg). These irregularities were associated with the presence of a terbinafine metabolite in ocular tissue and disappeared after drug discontinuation. of the active substance. They were not associated with histological changes.

A standard battery of in vitro and in vivo genotoxicity tests revealed no evidence of mutagenic or clastogenic potential.

No undesirable adverse effects on fertility or other reproduction parameters were observed in studies in rats or rabbits.
