Worsening Anxiety and Depression After Initiation of Lumacaftor/Ivacaftor Combination Therapy in Adolescent Females With Cystic Fibrosis

Cameron J McKinzie et al. J Cyst Fibros.

Abstract

In both phase III studies of LUM/IVA, as well as an extension study, worsening of mental health was not reported as a common side effect. Here we describe five cases in adolescent female patients that suggest a worsening of anxiety or depression associated with its use. In these five patients, two experienced suicidal ideation and three made suicide attempts that resulted in psychiatric hospitalizations.

Keywords: CFTR modulator; Cystic fibrosis.
