I've been feeling increasingly anxious and depressed since my liver transplant 5 weeks ago. To the point of feeling like a panic attack. (I suffered from panic attacks several years back.) I didn't understand this sudden onset of these feelings, so I researched all the medications I'm currently taking. Sure enough, one of the immunosuppressives has anxiety and depression as common side effects. And this is a drug I'm going to have to take for the rest of my life so I don't reject my new liver. And appointments with a psychiatrist are a month wait. I don't know if I can hold my sanity that long.
