Welcome to HealingWell, Lisa Rae. After looking up the side-effects of Seroquel, I see it's quite an effective drug for some conditions although there are some strong side-effects. It is warned that if you have a family history of diabetes that you should tell your doctor because it can raise blood sugar a lot. I would be concerned about that and I don't think your primary doctor who denied the diabetes could have been caused by Seroquel knows about the side effects of the drug.
The following is from Drugs.com:
"Seroquel side effects
Get emergency medical help if you have signs of an allergic reaction to Seroquel: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.
Report any new or worsening symptoms to your doctor, such as: mood or behavior changes, anxiety, panic attacks, trouble sleeping, or if you feel impulsive, irritable, agitated, hostile, aggressive, restless, hyperactive (mentally or physically), more depressed, or have thoughts about suicide or hurting yourself.
Call your doctor at once if you have:
twitching or uncontrollable movements of your eyes, lips, tongue, face, arms, or legs;
mask-like appearance of the face, trouble swallowing, problems with speech;
a light-headed feeling, like you might pass out;
blurred vision, tunnel vision, eye pain, or seeing halos around lights;
severe nervous system reaction - very stiff (rigid) muscles, high fever, sweating, confusion, fast or uneven heartbeats, tremors, fainting;
high blood sugar - increased thirst, increased urination, hunger, dry mouth, fruity breath odor, drowsiness, dry skin, blurred vision, weight loss; or
low blood cell counts - sudden weakness or ill feeling, fever, chills, cold or flu symptoms, cough, sore throat, red or swollen gums, painful mouth sores, skin sores, trouble breathing."
If I were you, I would ask the psychiatrist to change you to another drug because of your blood sugar. I know he wants you to stay on it, but I would ask for another drug. Maybe you need to change doctors? I know that's not easy.
