Does prozac affect HIV testing ?

Jun 2, 2003

Dr Horwath,

I had a possible exposure to HIV about a month ago. I've been on prozac for about 2 yrs now for mild OCD.

I am anxious to get tested for HIV and I know I need to wait at least 3 months, but my question is does taking Prozac interfere with the accuracy of the HIV test, or the HIV test in general ?

I would sincerely appreciate your response.


Response from Dr. Horwath

I know of no reason why the Prozac should interfere with the accuracy of the HIV test.

commitment issues/fears
troubled, angry and hurting
