Anyone had any experience with medicine induced diabetes?
My husband has been taking Risperdal for the past two weeks for anxiety and to help manage bipolar disorder. I noticed that one of the side effects was hyperglycemia. But I didn't think much about it. Today, he started running to the bathroom complaining that he couldn't hold it and has been complaining of an increased appetite for the past week. I checked his blood sugar (he is not diabetic) and his glucose was 385. He is also passing ketones, though only a trace amount, in his urine. Anyone else had any experience with this?

The psych doc said to cut his dose in half until the next appointment, but the blood sugar results and ketones in the urine worry me.
