Am I eligible for the Aczone Gel patient assistance program?

We will review your application to determine whether you are eligible for the Aczone Gel patient assistance program. Each program has its own eligibility criteria which is set by the pharmaceutical companies, however the factors considered by most programs are:

  • I am uninsured or my insurance doesn’t cover my medication
  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

How do I apply for the Aczone Gel patient assistance program?

We make it as easy as possible to apply for the Aczone Gel patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our enrollment application. Tell us about any medications you are taking, including Aczone Gel. We will also ask for details about your healthcare provider, insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Aczone Gel assistance, we will handle the application process for you. We will work directly with your healthcare provider to prepare your application documents. Once we have received the signed application and supporting documents, we will submit them to the patient assistance program on your behalf. Our service continues once you are enrolled in the Aczone Gel patient assistance program, and we will automatically request your Aczone Gel medication refills for up to 1 year.

What is Aczone Gel?

Acne is a skin condition that affects all people at some point in their lives, most often during their teenage years. Symptoms normally improve as you get older. Acne occurs when the hair follicles under your skin become blocked with oil and dead skin cells, causing spots, greasy skin, and skin that can feel hot and tender. The areas of the body most commonly affected are the face, back, and chest.

Aczone is a topical gel medication used to help treat the symptoms of acne. It can be used alone or in combination with other medications. A small pea-sized amount of the gel should be applied directly to the skin area affected by the acne.

Aczone Gel active ingredients

Aczone Gel contains the prescription medicine dapsone. The mechanism of action of dapsone gel in treating acne is not fully understood, but we do know that dapsone kills the bacteria that causes acne, and helps to keep your skin pores clean.

Apply a thin layer of the gel to your skin after cleaning and drying the area. Gently rub the gel into your skin once daily. If your symptoms do not improve in 12 weeks speak to your doctor. Aczone may cause a serious condition in which the amount of oxygen in your bloodstream becomes dangerously low. If you notice your lips, fingernails, or the inside of your mouth turning blue, stop treatment and see your doctor immediately.

Aczone Gel side effects

The most common side effects caused by Aczone Gel include:

  • Dryness, redness, or oiliness of the skin

In rare instances, Aczone Gel can cause more serious side effects. These can include:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Lips, fingernails, or palms turning blue
  • Fever
  • Dizziness
  • Increase in heart rate

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Aczone Gel against your risk of side effects.
