Complaints of hypoglycemia resemble the sedative effect of antipsychotics. As such, clinicians may overlook hypoglycemia in patients with psychiatric disorders. Here, a case of hypoglycemia associated with hyperinsulinemia induced by quetiapine in a female patient with bipolar disorder is reported. The case suggests that clinicians should be aware of the potential for hypoglycemia induced by second-generation antipsychotics.
