What do kidney transplant pts take for anxiety/depression?
I am a kidney transplant patient for 1 year and got too anxious and depressed. So, my psychiatrist at the inpatient unit started me on Lamictal, ativan and lexapro. I know we are not doctors here and can not give med advice as such but wondered what meds your transplant center was ok to take for anxiety and depression? I have found the psychiatrist and TC nephrologist have to talk as tacro levels can change depending on the med given. I now have trouble balancing out TC meds and anxiety and depression meds and it is a difficult job. My psychiatrist seems impatient and not attentive to my side effects, arguing with me. I will call to get a second opinion tihs week. As this up and down with meds causes great anxiety in addition to the tacro anxiety. Anyone else struggle with this mental health issue and get solutions? Thank you. BB
