Geodon and Diabetes risk?

Posts: 285

Does anyone worry about the risk of getting diabetes when on Geodon? I exercise and eat right and have lost weight, but am still overweight.

I worry about getting diabetes due to taking Geodon.

Anyone else worry or discuss this with your doctor?

I have talked to my doc about it. I have a strong family history of diabetes. I was told that was a very low risk on Geodon. That was acctually one of the reasons we tried that one specifically.

I was told it's a very low risk for diabetes as well. Seroquel has a high risk for diabetes, which is why I'm on Geodon. I was borderline diabetic.
