Aczone (Dapsone) Medication Information

Uses

Aczone is a prescription gel product that can be used to treat acne vulgaris. It is approved for patients that are 12 years of age or older. The generic name for Aczone is dapsone.

Acne vulgaris (also called acne) is a common skin condition when hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. Acne commonly occurs on the face but can also happen to other parts of the body.

Acne occurs most often in teenagers but can also affect adults.

Common manifestations of acne include pimples, blackheads, and bumps. Severe acne may include redness and tenderness around the area.

Aczone is an antibacterial agent that seems to be effective against bacteria that increase the formation of acne.

Dosage

Aczone is available as a 5% gel.

Apply a thin layer of Aczone to the affected area(s) once daily or as directed by your healthcare provider. If using on the face, apply a thin layer to the entire face.

Before application, wash the area with warm water and dry thoroughly. Wash the hands after application.

  • Motor weakness
  • Skin reactions

Precautions

Aczone is for topical usage only. Avoid contact with the mouth, eyes, and genitals.

Do not use Aczone if you have a history of methemoglobinemia.

Tell your doctor if you have the genetic condition Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency.

Interactions

Drug interactions are infrequent with topical medications because they are not absorbed into the bloodstream. However, in rare cases, they can interact with certain medications.

Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim) may increase the levels of dapsone in the bloodstream.

Using Aczone at the same time as benzoyl peroxide may result in temporary discoloration of the skin to orange or yellow.

  • You can use gloves to apply Aczone.
