Meds with Anti-depressants?
Dec 23, 2006

Dear Dr. Wohl,

Good morning to you.

I was diagnosed 2 days ago as HIV positive. It had been almost a year ago that I lasted tested and was negative. Despite the usual emotions involved with such a diagnosis, I remain optimistic. My question to you is this: I am currently on anti-depressants (and have been for a number of years) - Lexapro. Will tthe meds I start taking for HIV interfere or be hampered by the Lexapro?

Eagerly awaiting your reply.

Happy Holidays.

Ethan

Response from Dr. Wohl

Dear Ethan,

There should not be a major interaction between HIV medications and Lexapro.
