ACZONE® (dapsone) Gel 5% is approved for the topical treatment of acne vulgaris.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
Do not use ACZONE® Gel if you are allergic to any of the ingredients in ACZONE® Gel or if you are younger than 12 years of age.
Tell your doctor about all of your medical conditions, including if you have glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency.
Like all medicines, ACZONE® Gel can cause some side effects. The most common side effects of ACZONE® Gel are dryness, redness, oiliness, and peeling of the skin being treated.
When the active ingredient of ACZONE® Gel (called dapsone) is taken orally as a pill, it has been related to the abnormal breakdown of red blood cells (hemolytic anemia). If you have glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency, you may have a greater risk for lowering your hemoglobin level. However, using ACZONE® Gel on the skin is not expected to put enough dapsone in the blood to cause clinical symptoms of hemolytic anemia. You are advised to be alert for signs and symptoms suggestive of this type of anemia (sudden onset of: back pain, breathlessness, tiredness/weakness with daily activities, dark-brown urine, high fever, and yellow or pale skin). If you experience these signs and symptoms, stop use and call your doctor immediately.
Use of benzoyl peroxide together with ACZONE® Gel at the same time may cause your skin to temporarily turn yellow or orange at the site of application.

If you use ACZONE® (dapsone) Gel 5% and recently refilled your prescription, you may have noticed that ACZONE® has a slightly different look and feel. ACZONE® is now whiter and has a finer texture than it had before. This change comes from the fact that we've moved production from a third-party manufacturing facility to our own manufacturing site. Allergan is committed to ensuring the quality of our products and made this move as part of our long-term commitment to the dermatology market. Though the look and feel of ACZONE® has slightly changed, the product has the same performance characteristics and fully meets all FDA product specifications for its manufacture.
Our continuing goal at Allergan is to provide you with the highest quality and best performing products possible. Please contact Allergan customer service at 1-800-433-8871 if you have any questions.
