What Are The Possible Side Effects of Aczone?

Like all other medications, Aczone can cause side effects such as dryness, redness, oiliness, and peeling. These side effects are usually mild and go away. Call your doctor if you have any of these side effects that do not go away or bother you. The active ingredient of Aczone is dapsone and has been associated with blood cell abnormalities when taken as a pill. Application of Aczone on the skin is not expected to put enough amount of dapsone in the blood to cause such abnormalities and these have not been reported in Aczone clinical trials. However, you are advised to be alert for symptoms that suggest these abnormal conditions such as anemia and low white blood cell symptoms. Some of these symptoms include inflammation of pancreas associated with persistent low grade fever and abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, anemic symptoms such as rapid heartbeat, breathlessness, loss of stamina, persistent tiredness, red-brown urine, acute back pain, jaundice (yellow eyes or skin), low white blood cell symptoms such as weakness, persistent lethargy, sore throat, persistent fever and other symptoms of infections.
