HIV tests and anti-depressants

May 10, 2004


Thank you for your very informative and invaluable information.

My question is whether the taking of Zoloft (Sertraline 50mg) and Risperdal 0.5mg (Risperidone 0.5mg) has any impact on the results of HIV tests such as the PCR QUALITATIVE and ELISA tests?

Many thanks.

Response from Dr. Horwath

No, these medications have no significant effect on serologic tests such as these.
