Here is a heads up for everyone taking or considering anti-depressant medication. One study has found a higher incidence of diabetes in high risk pre-diabetic persons undergoing intensive preventative treatment. What is not clear is whether anti-depressant use was associated with previous serious depression. The results could indicate depression and/or anti-depressant use increases the risk of diabetes. Further study certainly is certainly indicated. Please note, there is NO reason to consider discontinuing your medication based on this study alone. Bring your concerns to your doctor, preferably a psychiatrist.
