I'm a Brazilian dermatologist. I used dapsone to treat dermatitis herpetiformis in my mother. After 30 days of use of 100 mg per day of the drug she presented loss of muscular strength and paralysis of legs and arms. I do not know how to try to reverse this symptom. Is there a drug that reverses this effect? Please, thank you for any kind of help.

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.
