Diabetic Ketoacidosis Possibly Precipitated by Loxapine
Author(s): Marilyn J. Miller

This case describes the development of diabetic ketoacidosis in a middle-aged man with schizophrenia who had recently been prescribed loxapine. While there had been exposure to other antipsychotic medications, loxapine was the most recent addition to the regimen and a possible precipitant of the diabetic ketoacidosis. It is suggested that clinicians be alert to the possibility of new-onset diabetes in patients receiving both typical and atypical antipsychotics.
