Dapsone

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me how long you need to take dapsone before you actually see results? I started on 50mg and took that for about 5 days expecting to see some improvement in the rash. Instead, I continue to have new breakouts even though I'm trying to eat a gluten-free diet. After 5 days, I bumped it up to 100 mg, but the side effects from that interfere with my ability to focus and be productive at work. I'm wondering if I didnt' give the 50 mg long enough to have an effect?

My doc started me on 100mg and I saw results after 72 hours when I was free of the itching. The lesions started to heal in about 1 1/2 weeks, but I suffered bad side effects at that dose so I reduced the dose to 75mg and the side effects were not as bad, but the rash came back at the lower dose so I discontinued because it wasn't worth it.
