I will be taking them 5 days in each 4 week cycle.
Dapsone - 25 mg x 2 daily
Pyramethamine - 50 - x1 daily plus Leucovorin 10 x1
So if the Pyramethamine works by inhibiting folic acid metabolism - how does it help to add more in? Won’t it just block what we add?
Also read it can cause anemia (from folic acid deficiency) and bone marrow suppression.
Any experiences? Did you tolerate it?
I am also taking Rifabutin plus Ceftin and mino on the M/W/F with the dapsone and pyramethamine.
Also - I don’t think I can get folic acid testing - not available .
I just had a lab test for folic acid but I don’t think I can get monthly follow ups after this one.
