Lepra reactions are complicated inflammatory reactions that may occur before, during or after the treatment for leprosy, a serious bacterial skin disease.

This medicine may reduce the number of blood cells (decrease red blood and white blood cells) in your blood, thereby, increasing the susceptibility to infections or bleeding.
