Antipsychotic drugs, often used to treat schizophrenia, can cause hyperglycemia and diabetes, a new alert has revealed.
First off the mark with a new warning is Geodon (ziprasidone), which urges doctors to think carefully about prescribing the drug to any patient who is at greater risk of developing diabetes through family history or obesity.

Other reactions already known include irregular heart rhythms or palpitations, loss of consciousness, nausea, constipation, and abnormal muscle movements including tremor.
