Donating blood and Lexapro

Apr 30, 2007

Hey Dr. Bob,

I recently tested negative for hiv 18 months after I had unprotected sex with 2 girls in college. I thought I was fine so I went and donated blood. When I had donated blood it was 3 years after this exposure, I was taking Lexapro for about a year. Now I am afraid to donate blood again, b/c I am afraid I might have HIV and both tests were false negative b/c of the Lexapro.

1) Would Lexapro in any way affect hiv test results?

Please respond.

Thanks for everything!!!!

You're welcome!
