mental health-bad drug reaction

Hi all My son has DD508 and depression. We have just discovered that his moods went very low when he was on a certain antibiotic called Akamin (mincycline) and as soon as he came off it things started to improve. He stopped crying for no reason, being angry and argumentative all the time and wanting to end his life. It wasnt the cure for his depression and he is on antidepressants but it made a huge difference. His doctors had not come across such a reaction before,anyone heard of this happening?:confused: Mumof1

Purpose of review Anxiety and depression (A&D) are common in cystic fibrosis (CF). This review defines A&D in the context of CF and examines our current knowledge about A&D, the impact on CF, treatment and illness trajectory and explores potential areas for prevention. Recent findings CF and A&D are interrelated. The CF diagnosis, symptoms and treatment may trigger symptoms of A&D, leading in some patients, to a clinical diagnosis of anxiety or depression. In return A&D impacts CF, potentially worsening the prognosis, decreasing treatment adherence and overall well being. Research shows how prevention is often imbedde...

Children, adolescents, and young adults living with life-threatening serious pediatric illness (SPI) face considerable physical and emotional tolls via their disease conditions, treatment demands, and sequelae. To guide clinical interventions and future research for young people with SPI, Barker and colleagues conducted a meta-analysis to estimate the prevalence of anxiety and depression in children and young people with a variety of SPI, including cancer, cystic fibrosis, HIV, thalassemia, neurological conditions, and chronic kidney disease. The authors found that the prevalence of anxiety and depression is higher among y...

AbstractIndividuals with cystic fibrosis (CF) are confronted by a range of difficult physical and psychosocial sequelae. Gratitude has drawn growing attention as a psychosocial resource, but it has yet to be examined among adults with CF. The current investigation evaluated longitudinal associations between trait gratitude and subsequent outcomes from depression screening 12  months later, adjusting for disease severity (FEV1% predicted) and other significant clinical or demographic covariates. Participants were 69 adult CF patients recruited from a regional adult treatment center. They completed a validated measure o...
