I was diagnosed with Wells Syndrome a few months ago and my Dermatologist put me on Dapsone. I take 50mg/day adn after 30 days, I stopped getting lesions. My Dr. said I could try taking 25 mg/day.... after the 4th day I got a new lesion! so I'm back to 50 mg/day. I am a runner, and now that I've been on it for over 2 months I think it is begining to affect my lungs. I NEVER had problems breathing when I run. Today I thought I was going to have to call an ambulance for oxygen... no joke. Think it's from the dapsone?

I have taken this drug for 5 years. It helped alot for the first1-3 years but now I am in a "holding pattern"; not getting worse or improving. I have blisters in my nose that impairs my breathing, scarred tissue in 1 eye, & redness in my mouth.

Used to treat dermitis repediformis.works very well.I don't like the new packaging. With taking 3 tabs a day the blister packs are a pain.

I've been taking this drug for a year now to combat Dermatitis Herpetiformis. It works great, but after the first of the year, I tried to get a refill and was told that they no longer make this drug. What is going on?
