In brief: Not bad but caution

Aripiprazole may interfere with blood glucose control and reduce effectiveness of metFORMIN and other diabetic medications.
Monitor blood sugar levels closely. You may need dose adjustment of diabetic medications during and after treatment with Aripiprazole. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use. Best regards for relief.
