Does Using Anti depressent tablets delays the window period?

Jan 23, 2010

Hi Bob I have been using anti-depressent tables for past 10 years if I want to check my hiv status does using of these anti depressent tables (they are Clomipromine and Fluoxitane) results in delaying my hiv status? that means what should be the window period in this case(i.e where people use anti depressent tables for long period). Kindly respond as early as possible.Looking for your reply eagerly.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Antidepressants have no effect on HIV test results or on the duration of the window period.
