That treatment plan sounds a bit unusual, since as I understand it, d-pen has largely fallen by the wayside for treatment of scleroderma. See:
Ineffective Treatments: Penicillamine
You may want to consult a scleroderma expert for a second opinion, if you haven't already. It's my impression that some scleroderma experts still use d-pen under certain conditions, but if it were me, I'd really think twice about accepting the idea from anyone else, and I would want to know the reason they are prescribing it and what research they are basing their ideas on. It's possible they just may not have discovered the most recent research, since for many years d-pen was "the" treatment for scleroderma.
