I read someone mention it on this forum, and on another forum too. But I can't find any information about it. Thanks.

No, sorry. I did take it for 10 months but was only able to tolerate 25mg. It didn’t help me. I got worse and feel like I’m starting over now.
Found imbedded tick and oval rash March 2012
Symptoms appeared 2.5 months later.
Saw family Dr. Tested negative for Lyme and coinfections. Treatment started Dec. 2012. In 2014 tested positive for Bartonella. Clinically diagnosed with a Babesia in 2015. Currently taking - Clarythromycin, Dapsone and Plaquenil. Japanese Knotweed, Samento, Banderol and many others.

My doctor told me about this too. I'd be really interested to hear from someone on 200mg dapsone chime in if they are viewing this...

I just started Pyrazinamide...

LymeSick - with the Dapsone, you start low and increase, right?

You wouldn't just start with 200 mg?
