sertralin (SSRI) and herpes - can it trigger?

Recommended Posts

Divon

Hi!

I´m wondering about SSRI drugs such as sertralin and herpes. I feel like there possibly may be a connection where my SSRI meds are causing more nerve itching from my HSV. I googled real quick and saw that herpes simplex was listed as one of the uncommon side effects of sertralin. Anyone knows anything about this? Am I just worrying for nothing?

I used to take that med. If anything it might have caused me to have less obs because of less stress and anxiety. So i doubt it's causing you more obs. What it did do was turn me into an emotionless zombie with no highs of happiness and no lows of sadness. It felt really strange to not have any emotions so I came off it.

Well 99% of my highs in my life came from my dating life and sex and I have none of either of those now so trading no highs for no lows doesnt sound that bad to me :D.

      When who gets a positive test? I have already tested positive (as you and I have discussed multiple times in other threads and I state here) and HIPA would prevent me for getting his results unless he willingly provides to me, but as I’ve also stated HE won’t get tested.  Ya can’t get blood from a stone. He has nothing that would even start to compensate for the pain and suffering, let alone the missed work because of the pain!

      @Balancelife when you get a positive test, sue him!

      Read what I wrote and start Googling.  Both the Einstein College of Medicine (William Jacobs and Betsy Herold)  and University of Pennsylvania/Trivalent (Harvey Friedman) seem to believe they are on the right track and have established relationships outside of their respective universities.  Yes, it’s early, but they are taking the bat and readying to swing at HSV.   Cross those fingers and stay positive!

      Where ever you are trolling, I’ll be right there.

      Fingers crossed!! Could you elaborate a bit on the research or maybe post a link to it? Definitely could be a little light in the dark 🙂
