... disease?? My mother in law was given effexer... This made her to drugged... Is there anything else?? Please help she is about to give up on life
Hi, tntara! Although unfortunately most, if not all, antidepressants are metabolized by the liver and/or kidneys they can be safely used if the dosage is co-ordinated with frequent bloodwork to test the liver and kidney enzymes.
I have residual liver damge from a severe illness many years ago and I have taken/am taking Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor, lithium, Seroquel, Abilify, and Rexulti with no problems.
Best wishes to you both, Wildcat
