Positive: Your test will undoubtedly be positive. You can take your prescription or a note from the doctor stating that you're taking this medication and depending on the job i don't really foresee it as being any sort of a liability. You must be honest with any employer however when filling out a job application.

MEDICATION: Best to discuss medication with your Psychiatrist. If uncomfortable with your Dr. consult another for a second opinion. Have a physical exam by a Dr. to determine if you have a physical illness. Consult with a Clinical Psychologist for psychotherapy with ZOOM sessions. Fears and anxiety could be heightened due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Stay safe & hopeful to elevate your immune system.
