... sugar they my advanced rn perscribed seroquel xr for a diagnoses of supposedly bipolar disorder I took it for about 5 years and not once did she say that she would write a script for blood work to check my blood sugar. also I gained 80 pounds from this drug
Hi, Hi! The weight gain is unavoidable, but you might have been advised to switch to a med with less potential for causing weight gain.
My doctor scripts bloodwork at least every 6mos, but I also have bloodwork done when I go to my GP for my annual physical exam.
Your doctor was remiss in not monitoring you more closely if she never ordered bloodwork.
Best wishes, WCV
