I have Diabetes. My blood glucose was under control while I was on Clopixol depot injections. I stopped attending CMHT and so receiving depot injections. About 18 months later I was hospitalised and put on paliperidone. After my release my blood glucose level became elevated. My GP tried several different diabetes medications to lower it without success.

So I asked my psychiatrist to put me back on Clopixol as my blood glucose levels were under control on that. She refused and has instead prescribed something else to try. Also she has prescribed something for depression. I picked them both up from the chemist today and reading the leaflet with them. They both raise blood glucose levels! The psychiatrist is a fucking moron.

Is there any way you can speak to an independent medical professional and ask for advice.

I agree with you - it does appear a bit careless of them.

I don't have a care coordinator at the moment as my one left last month and they haven't replaced them yet. I've no one I can contact to speak to about it. I'm not seeing the psychitrist for another 5 weeks. I will have to wait for the new care coordinator to be appointed so I can speak to someone and get something more suitable.

I'm in a bad mood today and feel like getting pissed. I can't though as I have to pick my son up later. Probably for the best that I don't drink as its been nearly 7 weeks since I've had any alcohol.
