Why is Potaba prescribed?

Potaba is prescribed for conditions such as scleroderma, dermatomyositis, morphea and linear scleroderma, and Peyronie's disease. It is believed to produce a skin/plaque softening in patients when given in adequate dosage over sufficient time.


How does Potaba work?

Understanding of drug mechanisms at the cellular level is incomplete in the case of many medications. It is thought that Potaba has an antifibrotic effect due to increased oxygen uptake at the tissue level.


How is Potaba administered?

Orally, according to the following schedule:

Potaba Capsules (0.5 g): Take 6 capsules with a glass of water after meals and at bedtime with a snack.

Potaba Powder Envules (2 g/pack): Add 1½ envules to a glass of chilled water or juice; stir to dissolve, and drink after eating.

Potaba Tablets (0.5 g): Crush tablets and add to a glass of chilled water or juice; stir thoroughly and drink after eating.

If you are unable to eat, omit dosage until you resume eating again.

Medication burnout is a term used to describe a situation in which the patient stops taking medication. In consequence, the desired results of therapy will not be seen. Changing dosage form may prevent medication burnout.


What is the advantage of taking Potaba?

Therapy with Potaba is a nontoxic, low-risk treatment for conditions that are usually long-term. This regimen represents a good possibility of softening hardened tissue. As there is a very low incidence of drug interactions, many other medications may be continued while you are taking Potaba. It is highly soluble in water and therefore readily absorbed.


Where can I get Potaba?

Potaba requires a physician's prescription. It can be obtained from your local pharmacy.


Are there any contraindications to Potaba?

Your doctor should know if you are taking antimicrobial sulfonamides as Potaba may nullify the antibacterial effect.

Potaba should be administered with caution in the following medical conditions:

  • diabetes mellitus (sugar diabetes);

  • hypoglycemia (chronic low blood sugar);

  • allergy to Potaba or PABA; and

  • kidney disease.


How long should I take Potaba? How soon will I see results?

Length of therapy varies considerably with disease state and from person to person. It may be 2 to 3 months before results are noticeable.


Are there foods, drink, or activities I should avoid while taking Potaba?

Potaba therapy is most acceptable when taken in conjunction with meals or snacks. There are no specific foods or drinks to avoid, but it is good to keep a normal dietary intake to prevent stomach upset or low blood sugar. The doctor should know if you are on a special diet. Usual activities can be encouraged. If you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or nursing an infant, your doctor should be notified so this can be taken into consideration when prescribing Potaba or any prescription medication.


Are there any side effects for Potaba?

Anorexia, nausea, fever and rash have occurred rarely.


What should I do if these symptoms occur?

Notify the doctor, stop taking Potaba until symptoms subside. The doctor may then write a schedule to accomplish densensitization and to resume therapy.
