... and lexapro (15 mg) and clonazapam (1.0 mg) for anxiety/depression and sleep. I checked my blood sugar today (should be normal) with a glucose monitor and fasting was 108 and 2 hours after a hi carb challenge meal (rice and sweet potatoes) it was 164. Would a low carb diet help reduce these numbers? I'm disappointed such a low dose would have adverse effects on my blood sugar (its been about a month since I started the olanzapine).
Hi, backtolife! According to the American Diabetes Association, the glucose levels you mention are well within normal range. Are you diabetic and taking medications? I would share your concern with your doctor, but diabetes has only been associated with Zyprexa in a small number of cases.
Best wishes, WVC
Hi! I don't know anything about blood sugar levels... i know being on olanzopine or Zyprexa since 99?? I have developed prediabetes... there is an ongoing lawsuit right now for people on zyprexa who developed diabetes nd complications from getting diabetes... you should not be on this drug if your diabetic, i was lucky, i switched to stevia, and ate better, but it doesn't run in my fam either. You have to be so careful, if you stay on it, you have to change your whole diet... i would recommend a natural vitamin/mineral supplement called Empower Plus... you get it at Truehope.com you can order the first two bottles and follow instructions carefully, then you could qualify to receive further bottles at a reduced price... just tell them your having trouble affording it... also anti-anxiety supplements like NaturalVitality calm, and melatonin for sleep .
