Hello everyone, I posted a message on the diabetes board about this subject but had absolutely no response, so I am trying here.
I won't go into so much detail, but what I would like to know is if there is anyone who has been taking Celexa, or citalopram, and found a rise in their blood sugar levels, whether they are diabetic or pre-diabetic, or if they think it has pushed them towards diabetes or pre-diabetes.
I was put on them three weeks ago, and my sugar levels have risen quite sharply. I am very disappointed, as I had brought my levels down to almost normal through diet control, after being diagnosed with type ll diabetes at the end of June. I don't want to end up on yet more medication for the diabetes as I have really tried hard to control this. My doctor said they wouldn't affect my sugar levels, but they definitely have done
The only information I can find online is that it can actually lower
levels, so I am very confused here.
Looking forward to hearing from anyone who has had the same problem,
