Sulfapyridine is a sulfa medicine. It is used to help control dermatitis herpetiformis (Duhring's disease), a skin problem. It may also be used for other problems as determined by your doctor. However, this medicine will not work for any kind of infection as other sulfa medicines do.

This medicine may cause some serious side effects. Before using this medicine, be sure to talk to your doctor about these problems, as well as the good this medicine will do.

Sulfapyridine was available only with your doctor's prescription.

In December 1990, the manufacturer discontinued marketing sulfapyridine.
