Actually, increases in blood sugar can happen in some people if you take SEROQUEL XR so if you have diabetes your md should check your blood sugar before you start and during therapy. You want to notify your doctor right away if you have increased thirst, frequent ruination, are hungrier than usual, weak or tired, sick to your stomach and the most telling, confused with a fruity order to your breath. In a research study done, both insulin resistance and insulin secretion (if your body still makes it) were increased and actually put some participants at risk for developing DM. In 1/2004, the manufacturer changed Seroquel's labeling to warn of the serious diabetes related Seroquel effects. You should be closely monitored
Cristina30, Like the ones who said it does... they are absolutely correct. My Dr. Wanted me to have my blood drawn too often for me to take it. However, it obviously works great on some people. Much luck to you, my friend, and if this one doesn't feel like any satisfaction is happening, you have several others. Many blessings to you, and best of luck. Ruthie
If you are diabetic, increase your blood sugar testing to four times a day.
If you are not diabetic and have concerns, get in to see your doctor soon. Especially if you are pre-diabetic. It is common when on some meds to take insulin during that time. It is called medication induced diabetes type 2. It goes away after the drug is discontinued or your body adjusts sometimes.
Not saying the seroquel did it but I have type 2 diabetes that I never had, yes seroquel will raise your blood sugar... so have doc keep and eye on it... as for me I also have chronic pancreatitis among etc... so it could and I am no doc have been my pancreas that caused the diabetes... good luck and just always have doc keep close eye and bw on whatever med your on, and u keep track of side effects if any as well... good luck
