What is this pill - with 'wellcome h2b' imprint?


sudhir560 14 Jan 2013

Possibly this pill was given to me quite mistakenely by the medical store in place of another drug kbown as DAPSONE. This dapsone is used to treat skin problems related to allergy from gluten. I still would want to know myself about this drug called H2B Wellcome whether this could be an alternative to dapsone. Going by the available info (which is close to nothing), it doesn't appear to be so...

so whats the name of this pil H2B WELLCOME imprinted

On further rechecking with medical store (as well as the doctor) this tablet marked with WELCOME H2B did turn out to be DAPSONE. This has active chemical by the name of Diaminodiphenyl Sulphone. DAPSONE is used for treatment of leprosy and some other skin ailments. This particular tablet is manufactured GSK (Glaxo Smithkline). Hope this clarifies some doubts on this drug.

This pill was prescribed by doctor as Dapsone 25 mg and the medical store had it in a bottle of 1000 tablets lebelled as Dapsone. Although it was given for some skin condition (severe itching and rashes) to try out for leprosy and gluten allergy but since later on these proved to be not the case, the doses didn't work at all. On the contrary the symptoms got more severe (because the problem was not at all of leprosy or gluten allergy). After a biopsy (whih was simultaneously sent to labs) it was later diagnosed as some lichenoid keratosis and also perivascular chronic dermititis (eczema). Therefore Dapsone subsequently was discontinued and proper medicines were then prescribed. Actually Dapsone was only given as a trial for a condition which later proved not to be the case. Hope this clarifies your query.
