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.

I started taking turmeric and black pepper and my potassium went Sky high! 5.1! My potassium was fine before! Could the turmeric really cause it to jump and what do I do to lower it?

I have been using an anti-diarrhel for years and have recently had a spike in my potassium. Have any of you experienced the same? I have also heard theses effects can be age related and I am over 55.

Greetings. I've been taking Crestor 10mg daily for about 7 years. Recent lab studies have indicated an elevated potassium level. Wondering if there is a relationship between the elevated level and Crestor? Regards.

I am a 77 year old male. I have type II diabetes. I found out from my blood report last week that my potassium level was 6.0. I am wondering if Diltiazem 24 hr ER 120 mg might be responsible for it. I have been using this medicine for the last 6 months. For diabetes I take 100 mg Glucophage and repaglinide 6 mg daily. I am getting leg cramps while walking.
