    Jenny, when reading the article I thought of you immediately!

    It is good to know that these side effects are on the agenda now, and that dose-reduction can be a good solution.

    Trikafta has not influenced my mental health as far as I know. Only some light changes in my sleeping pattern with occasional problems of falling asleep in the night. I noticed having more energy, mental and bodily, but I was able to apply this energy in a positive way – more writing, reading, walking mostly.

    A good question is why? Why is TK ‘causing’ such mental health issues. With lung and bowel improvements one would expect mental health to improve as one feels better. Or is there an organic change in the brain caused by ion changes there-in. Lower chloride affecting the other ions (K, Na, Ca etc) affecting brain function? Does this suggest why Lithium works in Bipolar disorder by affecting levels of other cations?
