General Information on Curanail
Curanail is an antifungal medication used for the treatment of fungal infections that affect the sides or upper half of the nail. A nail infection that has spread to a greater extent would require the expert evaluation of a doctor.
The generic name of Curanail is amorolfine, a drug that belongs to the group of antifungal medications.
Curanail is known to treat a number of different fungi that cause nail infections. A fungal nail infection would result in the following visible signs- discoloration of the nails to yellow or brown, and brittle or thick nails. If the infection is widespread, its appearance would also vary considerably.
Side effects of Curanail
Curanail is not to be taken if you have an allergy to amorolfine or any other ingredient present in the drug. The signs of an allergy to this medicine would include breathing problems, appearance of hives, and swelling up of the face or throat. Curanail is also not recommended to be taken if the patient is pregnant, plans to become pregnant, or is in the breastfeeding stage.
Before you take this medication, consider consulting a doctor if you suffer from diabetes, circulation problems, or weak immunity. You are also recommended to consult a doctor if your nail has become severely infected or damaged.
In rare cases, Curanail may cause the nails being treated to become discolored or loose. The nail may also separate from the nail bed altogether. This happens in less than 1 in 1,000 people. In very rare cases, an allergic skin reaction or a burning sensation may occur in the area surrounding the nail. This has been reported by 1 in 10,000 people.
Dosage of Curanail
Curanail is a locally applied lacquer available in the bottle form with an applicator. The recommended frequency of using this medication is once a week. The treatment can last for a duration of 6 months if the infection is on the fingernails. If the infection is on the toenails, the treatment period may last for 9-12 months.
Improvements can be noticed only after 2-3 months since nails grow slowly. It is important for you to continue using Curanail until the infection has been completely treated and the nails look completely healthy again.
The nail must be prepared and cleaned before Curanail is applied. The nail can be cleaned with an alcohol swab or a nail polish remover. A swab can be used to clean the applicator as well.
The applicator provided can be used more than once, but it must be cleaned after each application. This is done to avoid the infection from spreading or recurring. You can find detailed instructions for the application of Curanail, as well as the proper duration of treatment in the patient information leaflet that comes along with the medication.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
