My daughter (age 10) was diagnosed with WPW two years ago and has been in treatment for anxiety and mood disorder characteristics (clinical descriptor since no one really wants to label a kid in the psych field). She is going to be medicated for at least the anxiety and possibly the mood swings (more depression than mania) but I can't find information on which medications are safe for kids with WPW. Any help would be great!
Sorry, but I believe your question/request are outside the range of experience of the "crew" with heart rhythm issues. I am sure any doctor prescribing mood/emotional medications would be able to (or find out about) interactions with WPW. Is your daughter taking any hearth medications?
I take, a senior not a child, am always surprised that when ever I need a short term medication for some transient aliment there never seems to be any problem/conflicts with my several heart medications. I do not suffer from WPW, so in my input here may be of zero value other than to "bump" your question to the top of the post list.
I have read many posts on WPW, so I know there is experience with that problem in our group of readers/posters.
My prayers are with you as you work to guide your daughter through these difficult times.
