Anti-Depressants and Outbreaks

Recommended Posts

Hi all! I was wondering if anyone is on any type of antidepressant and how it affects your outbreaks (if at all). I suffer from severe anxiety and depression and my Dr. wants me to start taking an antidepressant in addition to my Ativan but I’m worried if I start an antidepressant I will start having outbreaks again. The daily anxiety and panic attacks are becoming a lot to deal with. I’m in a constant state of not being able to breathe. I am currently on 1g of Valacyclovir daily has helped so much and I’m so worried any other medication will set off the virus again. I just ended a 6 day course of prednisone and have been freaking our because it is an immunosuppressant. Any insight would be great.
