A member asked:

Should i wait until after my blood panel appointment is done and reviewed in order to then begin a new daily medication (ssri for depression/anxiety) prescribed by my doctor? will it affect blood results? im not mixing with or taking any other meds?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

For the common blood panels like cbc,complete metabolic profile,lipid panel and thyroid parameters, SSRIs shouldn't affect results. It's best not to significantly delay treatment of depression.
