Besides, medicine is also a cause of patients’ mental problems. Patients in stage 5 kidney failure need to take lots of medicines, among which some need to be excreted out by kidneys. Because of patients’ severe kidney function, they will accumulate in patients’ blood. While some medicine ingredients can go through hemato encephalic barrier, and when that have high concentration in cerebrospinal fluid, they will cause the mental function. Besides, some medicine can influence the inhibitory neurotransmitter, which can also cause mental disorders.
