Would taking medication for HSV2 (Genital Herpes) affect ssri withdrawal symptoms or make withdrawal worse?

 

Does anyone know?

Took Prozac  (generic Fluoxetine) 10 mg for 4.5 months. First and only psych med. Stopped cold turkey. Been in protracted withdrawal for 2 years since I stopped ssri.

What is the exact medication that is to be prescribed?  To search the site you can use google and type in survivingantidepressants.org + "drug name".  I did find this one when I search for herpes:  acyclovir-zovirax-herpesshingles-should-i-take-it

Please DO NOT TAG me - thank you

I have not been diagnosed or prescribed any meds yet, but I am concerned that I was exposed to the virus, so if it comes to that, I just want to know what to avoid and what will work.

 

Also, IF I Had it, will it affect my wd symptoms for the worse?
