Dapsone review by 50 year old female patient

Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Highly Effective
Side effects:   Moderate Side Effects
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   dermatitis herpetiformis
Dosage & duration:   200mg taken once a day for the period of 1 year and continuing
Other conditions:   celiac
Other drugs taken:   nil
Reported Results
Benefits:   Dapsone treated the intensly itchy skin condition quickly and efficiently. A gluten free diet alone did not relieve this condition.
Side effects:   The side effects after one year have been a slight decrease in red blood count. There has also been an onset of shakyness which I believe has been a side effect.
Comments:   2-100mg tablets are taken at bedtime. The dosage is self medicating, which means that if the condition is under control I can lower the doseage to see if the contrlo can be maintained at a lower dose. So far, after one year, I have been unable to do so.
