Hi. İ want to change my medication to xyprexa but i read that its high possibilities that develop diabetes when people use this medicine? . Does anyone know what s the percentage or chance to develop diabetes at this medicine? Does anybody using this medicine at this forum?
I’m also interested in knowing what the chances are of getting diabetes DESPITE maintaining a normal weight, on zyprexa
I thought all antipsychotics have the possibility of increasing your blood sugar
I didn’t get diabetes and was on it for a year and a half, but then again I wasn’t compliant. Not sure if the unbalanced dosing all the time stopped some side effects. Don’t know how that works.
i get my blood checked on risperidone
I met a guy in the hospital who developed diabetes from Zyprexa.
I was on it at the time, and got off of it because of that.
ive been on zyprexa for a while, used to be in good shape and i gained almost 180 pounds being on it for almost 2 years, despite this my blood sugar is always completely normal whenever i go to the doctor so no diabetes at all, but my cholesterol is a little higher than before i started taking it, the weight gain sucks tho and i never feel full when eating, might be going on a different medication soon zyprexa works well for me but the side effects are no good
Maybe you can contact the manufacturer of your medication and ask them this question.
I hate this drug. I put on 35 kilos on it and I have been off it four years and only lost 15 kilos
I gained a lot of weight on it and got diabetes from it. I stopped the Zyprexa and changed to Abilify.
I hope not. I take 60mg olanzapine
that is a huge dose
I took zypexa before but it doesnt make any difference to my blood glucose levels. Just an increase in appetite thats all.
I was taking Zyprexa in 2011 and came down with diabetes. I switched to Risperdal. I weighed 330lbs when I came down with diabetes. I started taking Zyprexa in 2008 and maybe weighed 225lbs.
