Antipsychotic Drugs Linked to Higher Odds for Diabetes in Pregnancy
Date:7/2/2012

MONDAY, July 2 (HealthDay News) -- New research suggests pregnant mothers who take certain antipsychotic drugs may face a higher risk of gestational diabetes, which can appear during pregnancy.

Gestational diabetes involves high blood sugar that starts or is first diagnosed during pregnancy. According to the U.S. National Institutes of Health, gestational diabetes can pose hazards for both mother and baby.

Gestational diabetes was more than twice as common (4.3 percent vs. 1.7 percent) in women who filled prescriptions for antipsychotics, the researchers reported. The study did not, however, prove the antipsychotics directly increased the risk of gestational diabetes.

"Maternal use of antipsychotics during pregnancy ... is associated with an increased risk of gestational diabetes," the authors wrote. "Pregnant women treated with antipsychotics should be closely monitored for gestational diabetes and deviating fetal growth."

One expert in the United States agreed that there has been "a paucity of information" about potential links between these drugs and diabetes in pregnancy.
