    Took Dapsone for about a month and experienced higher and higher blood potassium levels until the level spiked to almost 7. Dapsone was immediately stopped and I was placed on Kayexalate which caused other problems that needed to be addressed immediately. At this point I am not on Dapsone and really do not want to return to it.
