10 110 oval pill

One side says jacobus and the other has 10 110. It's a scored oval tablet. ## This is a 100mg Dapsone tablet, it is an antibacterial that's usually prescribed with others to treat TB. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and rash. Is there anything else I can help with? ## This drug is "3,4-diaminopyridine", an orphan drug for Eaton-Lambert syndrome produced by Jacobus Pharmaceutical Company. THE OTHER POST IS INCORRECT -- Dapsone 100mg tab by Jacobus would have 100 101 marking and is round.

Dapsone generics / Jacobus prices gone mad!!!

I've suffered from dermatitis herpetaphormis for 35 years. The price of Dapsone has gone through the roof. Jacobus was the only maker for years. Now other companies are making the drug. Correct? My pharmacist says no, but I saw different manufacturers. Is there a buyer's club or something? I must have this but cant afford the new increase in price. Can someone help me? ## No, there is no buyers club, but yes, you are correct, the tablets are being manufactured by 3 other companies, Fera Pharmaceuticals, Nsotrum Laboratories, and Virtus Pharmaceuticals, according to NIH listings. Have you tried a different pharmacy? Another one might be more helpful regarding checking various prices for you. What is your current pharmacy charging for it?
