My son took oral terbinafine (Lamisil) for toenail fungus in March and it opened up a whole can of worms. On third day of therapy he developed chest pain, shortness of breath, insomnia, loss of appetite (but not loss of taste), fatigue, and anxiety. And over two momths later he is still has loss of appetite and occasional chest pain. Covid was ruled out by PCR and antibody testing and chest xray and labs (liver function, hematological, etc) look great. So by exclusion, terbinafine might have triggered anxiety and panic attacks. Lamisil cleared up my husbands toenail fungus fine with no side effects, but when you get side effects, watch out. Panic disorder runs in the family, but my son never had problems before. Terbinafine may have unmasked it. Good luck!
