Question Medicine problems with PEG tub

Hello, PALS. My Hubby is getting to the point we need to take as many RX by tube as possible. He is taking Effexor for depression/anxiety. Because it is time-release, it cannot be crushed. We have tried liquid Prozac instead of Effexor but it is not working. Hubs is so sad and swears he feels awful and overwhelmed.

What anti-depressants and anti-anxiety work for you with your PEGs?


Thanks,
Hopeful

Default Re: Medicine problems with PEG tub

Hopeful...My Mom takes Remeron which comes in a dissolving pill and it dissolves in the peg great. She also takes Xanax ground up in the peg for quick anxiety relief. The Remeron seemed to work pretty quickly - quicker than other SSRI's. She was on liquid Paxil first but that upset her stomach. Remeron also seems to help her sleep better.

He also takes zoloft, which I crush and add to liquids going into PEG. I'll ask the doc about Remeron. Thanks!
