I don't take any but I would recommend talking to one of your doctors about which one is safe to use. I personally try to avoid taking most medications partially because of my PKD.

There have been plenty of people in this group taking anti depressants over the years. I don't know whether there are any at the moment, though. This is from 2010. It seems Zoloft is OK with kidney disease.
