Are antipsychotics the only meds that can cause this?
My doctor said Abilify is one of the ones that is friendlier towards us in regards to getting diabetes. I happen to take risperdal and have diabetes. I started taking after I got diabetes and it does not elevate my sugar. There is a warning about it for some people have problems with it but not me.
