Anti-depressants and Delayed Seroconversion?

Jul 6, 2001

Hi Doctor, I've been taking high doses of several antidepressants, which have caused me to gain weight (20 pounds) and become pretty constipated. Could my slowed metabolism cause a delayed seroconversion? I'm in the window period and will definitely test at the six month mark. If it's negative, would I need to wait 12 months because of my slowed metabolism?

Thank you, your medical opinion is appreciated.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

These meds will not affect seroconversion time.

quick question
Could I be positive
