my antipsychotics could be the underlining reason for diabet

Postby blackroomgirl » Wed Oct 05, 2016 2:49 am

So, about a month ago I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, which the Dr. said may be the side effect of my antipsychotics.
He recently switched me to a new antipsychotic but now I have to take insulin and watch what I eat and drink.
I did a test and stopped taking my antipsychs for 3 days and the 3 days I didn't take them my sugar was far more under control than it had been.
Anyone else have this side effect from any medication.
Im gonna still stay on my insulin when I make the switch, until my diabetic dr tells me I can stop and switches me to pills.
Ive gotten used to poking myself my shot though.
