My sympathies go out to all fellow suffers of chronic abdominal pain with Dapsone . I have been taking this drug for 25 years and have experienced progressive pain on 100 mg / day . I have been extensively investigated ranging from intra- gut camera to laparotomy ! My dermatitis Herpetiformis is very dependent on dapsone and , having finally decided myself that my pain is dapsone related , i have started to reduce the daily dose by 50mgms without much recurrence of the DH blisters . Sadly this has not resulted in any improvement in the quality of the pain which remains severe especially in the early morning and afternoon . I am on a full gluten free diet and otherwise require oxycodone 20mgs to 80 mgs daily as well as a TENS unit .
Seemingly , there is no overtly alternative drug to dapsone on the market , other than sulfa drugs . Does anyone have experience with any other drug as prophylaxis against dermatitis herpetiformis ? Also , does anyone use dapsone gel for breakthrough blisters from DH ?

I'm a Brazilian dermatologist. I used dapsone to treat dermatitis herpetiformis in my mother.
After 30 days of use of 100 mg per day of the drug she presented loss of muscular strength and paralysis of legs and arms.
I do not know how to try to reverse this symptom. Is there a drug that reverses this effect?
Please, thank you for any kind of help.

I am 68 yr old female taking Dapsone for 10 yrs. I have just lost 30 pounds and feel great and have never had blood sugar issues. Now blood test says 386. Could Dapsone be the cause?

Took Dapsone for about a month and experienced higher and higher blood potassium levels until the level spiked to almost 7. Dapsone was immediately stopped and I was placed on Kayexalate which caused other problems that needed to be addressed immediately. At this point I am not on Dapsone and really do not want to return to it.

I am diagnosed with Lambert- Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome, I am seeking support from others than can identify with my condition, it is difficult for me to find others that can empathize with me. I am currently participating in an FDA study and taking DAP, a medication pending approval from the FDA.
