Why is this medication prescribed?

To treat fungal toenail infections (infections that may result in nail discolouration, cracking, or pain), a topical solution of efinaconazole is utilised. A group of drugs known as antifungals includes finaconazole topical solution. It functions by preventing nail fungus from growing.

How should this medicine be used?

A topical solution of finaconazole is available for use on the infected toenails. Typically, it takes 48 weeks of daily applications. Apply the topical efinaconazole solution at roughly the same time each day. Ask your doctor or chemist to explain any instructions on your prescription label that you are unsure about following. Apply the topical efinaconazole solution exactly as instructed. Do not use more, less, or more frequently than advised by your doctor.

Use of the topical efinaconazole solution is restricted to the toenails only. Except for the region immediately surrounding your toenail(s) that are affected, try to avoid getting efinaconazole on your skin. Avoid getting efinaconazole in your mouth, nose, vagina, or eyes.

Topical efinaconazole solution could burn. While using this drug, stay away from heat and flames.

During the course of your efinaconazole topical solution treatment, avoid getting a pedicure or using nail polish or other cosmetic nail treatments on your toenails.

Take the following actions to apply the topical solution:

  • Make sure your toenails are tidy and dry. Before applying the drug, wait at least ten minutes after taking a shower, bath, or cleaning your toenails.
  • Hold the bottle with the cover off over the affected toe.
  • Apply one drop of the medication to your toenail by gently squeezing the bottle. If you are using the medication on your big toe, press the bottle once more to add a second drop to the tip of your toenail.
  • Apply the medication to your toenail, including the cuticle, the folds of skin on either side of the nail, and the skin beneath the toenail, using the brush that comes with the bottle. While spreading the medication, take care not to squeeze the bottle.
  • Repeat steps 3 through 4 to apply the medication to each afflicted toenail if you have more than one that is affected.
  • Reattach the cap to the bottle and tighten it.
  • Let your toenails totally dry.
  • Use soap and water to wash your hands.

What special precautions should I follow?

Before using efinaconazole topical solution,

  • If you have an allergy to efinaconazole, any other drugs, or any of the ingredients in efinaconazole topical solution, let your doctor and pharmacist know right away. For a list of the chemicals, consult your chemist or the manufacturer’s patient information.
  • Inform your doctor and chemist about all prescription and over-the-counter drugs, vitamins, dietary supplements, and herbal products that you are now taking or intend to use. Your physician might need to adjust the dosage of your drugs or keep a close eye on you for side effects.
  • Inform your doctor of any medical conditions you now have or have ever had.
  • Inform your physician if you are nursing a baby, intend to get pregnant, or are already pregnant. Call your doctor if you become pregnant while using efinaconazole topical solution.

What special dietary instructions should I follow?

Keep eating normally unless your doctor instructs you otherwise.

What should I do if I forget a dose?

As soon as you realise you missed a dose, administer it. If the next dose is soon due, skip the missed one and carry on with your regular dosing plan. Applying extra solution to make up for a forgotten dose is not advised.

What side effects can this medication cause?

The topical solution of finaconazole might have negative consequences. If any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away, let your doctor know right once:

  • Around the damaged toenail(s), the skin may become irritated, itchy, or swollen
  • Stinging, burning, or discomfort in the vicinity of the affected toenail(s)
  • Blisters near the afflicted toenail or toenails
  • An overgrown nail

What should I know about storage and disposal of this medication?

Keep this medication out of the reach of children and tightly closed in the original container. It should not be kept in the bathroom. Store it upright at room temperature, away from open fires, excessive heat, and dampness. The drug must not freeze.

Unused prescriptions must be disposed of carefully to prevent pets, kids, and other people from ingesting them. You should not, however, dispose of this medication in the toilet. Instead, utilising a medicine take-back programme is the ideal approach to get rid of your medicines. To find out about take-back programmes in your area, speak with your chemist or the garbage/recycling department in your city. If you do not have access to a take-back programme, visit the FDA’s Safe Disposal of Medicines website at for additional information.

As many containers (such as weekly pill minders and those for eye drops, creams, patches, and inhalers) are not child-resistant and are simple for young children to open, it is crucial to keep all medications out of sight and out of reach of children. Always lock safety caps and promptly stash medication up and away from young children where it is out of their sight and reach to prevent poisoning.

In case of emergency/overdose

Call the poison control hotline at 1-800-222-1222 in the event of an overdose. Additionally, information can be found online at Call 911 right once if the person has collapsed, experienced a seizure, is having difficulty breathing, or cannot be roused.

What other information should I know?

Keep all of your doctor’s appointments.

No one else should take your medication. Any queries you may have regarding prescription refills should be directed to your chemist.

You should keep a written record of every medication you take, including any over-the-counter (OTC) items, prescription drugs, and dietary supplements like vitamins and minerals. This list should be brought with you whenever you see a doctor or are admitted to the hospital. You should always have this information with you in case of emergencies.
