Griseofulvin 250mg Tablets 100's

Griseofulvin tablets contain griseofulvin which is an antifungal antibiotic. Griseofulvin kills the fungi that cause infections of: the skin, scalp, hair or nails. It works by helping the newly formed skin, hair and nails to resist attack by fungi. As the new tissue grows, the old and infected is cast off. It is important to continue treatment until all the old infected tissue is gone.
How to use
Adults: the usual dose is 500 mg to 1000 mg once daily. Your doctor may ask you to take a smaller dose several times a day.
Children: follow your doctor's instructions. Keep taking the tablets for at least two weeks after all signs of infection have disappeared. You may need to take Griseofulvin every day for many weeks or months while new skin, hair or nails grow. This depends upon the thickness of
keratin (hair, nails) at the site of infection. For toe or finger nails you may need 6 to 12 months treatment. For hair or skin at least 4 weeks treatment is required.
