Medication information

Jublia 10% top. liquid

This medication contains a topical antifungal drug. Typically, it is used for fungal infections of the nails. It requires a few months to take effect.


Instructions for use:

  • Make sure that the nails are clean and dry. Wait at least 10 minutes after showering or bathing before applying the product.
  • Remove the cap, hold the bottle upside down and gently squeeze to wet the brush attached to the bottle, if necessary.
  • Using the wet brush and without squeezing the bottle, spread the solution over the entire surface of the nail, on the skin next to the sides of the nail, and under the nail if possible.
  • Repeat these steps for all affected nails. Apply twice on the big toenail.
  • Allow to air dry.
  • Be sure to replace the cap tightly on the bottle and to store in an upright position.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water after application.

This medication is typically used only once a day. However, your pharmacist may have suggested a different schedule that is more appropriate for you. If you forget a dose, apply it as soon as you remember -- unless it is almost time for your next dose. In that case, skip the missed one. Do not apply more to try to catch up.

Side effects

In addition to its desired action, this medication may cause some side effects, notably:

  • it may cause the skin to become red and swollen;
  • it may cause blisters at the application site.

Each person may react differently to a treatment. If you think this medication may be causing side effects (including those described here, or others), talk to your health care professional. He or she can help you to determine whether or not the medication is the source of the problem.


As with most medications, this product should be stored at room temperature. Store it in a secure location where it will not be exposed to excessive heat, moisture or direct sunlight. Make sure that any leftover portion is disposed of safely.

General notes

When meeting with any health professional, it is important for you to share the following information:

  • Your medical history and allergies (medication, food, or other);
  • If you're pregnant or want to become pregnant, or if you're breastfeeding;
  • If you use tobacco or cannabis or its derivatives, or if you use recreational drugs;
  • The names of all the medications you take, whether you take them regularly or once in a while, including over-the-counter medications, vitamins, and natural health products.

It is also strongly recommended that you keep an up-to-date list of all the medications you take and carry it with you at all times. This could be useful if you have to see a health professional or need emergency care.

Keep all your medications out of the reach of children and pets and return any unused or expired medications to the pharmacy for proper disposal.
