Vitiligo is a chronic disease, the patients need long term and continuously take medicines. Many patients have that feeling that the first time they take a medicine to treat vitiligo got quite good treatment effects, but when they take that medicine for a long time, they will find the treatment effects of this medicine is not as good as before. The patients long term take medicine will have drug resistance, that mainly because some medicines under the effect of the drug metabolic enzyme in the liver, when the medicine enter into the blood and action site, the medicine play a role in a certain concentration, but it will not take a long time before the medicine will broke down and destroyed under the act of the drug metabolic enzyme, it’s treatment effects will decreased.
