It may take several weeks for your symptoms to improve and you should keep using this medicine regularly. The entire course of the treatment should be completed to ensure that the infection does not come back. If your condition does not improve or gets worse, you should talk to your doctor.

FAQs

Q. How long does it take to clear the nail infection?

Amocop takes a few days or weeks to clear up the infection. Clearing up an infection refers to the improvement of the symptoms of the infection. On the other hand, it may take at least 6 months to cure the fingernail infection and 9-12 months to cure toenails. Curing of the infection takes longer because a nail infection gets cured only after the infected nail is naturally replaced by a new nail.

Q. Can I stop taking Amocop when my symptoms are relieved?

You may notice some improvement in your symptoms, but do not stop taking Amocop before completing the full course of treatment, even if you feel better. However, you must inform your doctor if the infection does not clear up even after 5 days of treatment.

Q. What are the instructions for storage and disposal of Amocop?

Keep this medicine in the container or the pack it came in, tightly closed. Store it according to the instructions mentioned on the pack or label. Dispose of unused medicine and make sure it is not consumed by pets, children and other people.
