Blood sugar is supposed to be test regularly when on Rexulti. Does anyone have blood tests taken? This drug warns of increased blood sugar. I almost died few months after taking this. I was in ICU for 6 days with DKA, severe diabetic keto acidosis.
Sadly, all of the antipsychotics (even the "new ones") have this risk profile. I'm so sorry this happened to you. I strongly urge people to never go on one of these drugs unless absolutely necessary. Even with blood tests it might not have been 100% preventable, unfortunately.
I am truly sorry for what you went through, thank God you are still here with us.
I have taken two antipsychotics (Seroquel and Zyprexa) for over 20 years. I am 52 and randomly a couple of weeks ago I had blood work done and the blood sugar came back pretty high.
I went to a diabetologist and I am now pre-diabetic.
