Mom has stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease. She's been taken off Sertraline, Mirtrapizine, and Trazadone. We need some ideas here for some that don't contribute to high creatinine levels which causes even more kidney damage. She also takes thyroid meds, and phenytoin for seizures.

We are looking for suggestions on anti-depression and anxiety medications for her.
My sister has stage 3 kidney disease. She has taken bupropion tianeptine and venafaxine. I think she's still on the bupropion. She says these meds have helped her depression very well. She still takes valium for anxiety. Which I don't think is a good idea but then again I'm not her doctor. I wish I could elaborate more but all of the sudden my mind has went blank. Sorry. I hope this helps you a little as far as choices of different meds. I'm sure you'll get another reply with more info. Good luck to you and your mother. Prayers. Pepper
