Hi, Sqizzy! Yes, Effexor and other antidepressants can cause metabolic imbalances including hyperglycemia, however the incidence is fairly rare.
Anyone taking any psych medications should have complete blood panels run at least once or twice a year. If you're diabetic or pre-diabetic your doctor will want to monitor you more closely.
Best wishes, WCV
