Stop taking dapsone for 2 weeks

Mar 10, 2014

Hi im having problems with getting an erection and arousing myself to function i have taken kamagra and this doesnt have any effect on me i have been taking dapsone 100mg for 2 weeks and prior to this septrin which gave me a rash. Before taking medication i had no problems with or without using kamagra. Im considering in not taking the medication to see if there is a change and with just 2 weeks before my next docter visit when they may start my hiv medication

Response from Dr. Wohl

I do not think the dapsone is doing anything but would discuss with your doctor. Pneumonia, which damson prevents, can certainly make it difficult to get erections so staying on the medication meanwhile is a good idea.
