What anxiety or what anti-depressant meds?
Anxiety and depression are two different conditions.

I have Chronic Hep C too-Genotype 1 & am interested in Vertex. Do you or does anyone know anything about this trtmnt yet?! I think it still needs to be passed by the FDA. Zoloft made me more angry in the past & gave me the runs after a week being on it. I was on Paxil after that & that didn't work either. I think I found the right anxiety/depression(I have both-PTSD). I'm on Prozac 20mg. I've been feeling better, but this week am pretty down ugh :-( . Yesterday I got a knock on my door & it was the Fedex guy that gave me a letter. It is a letter from a Col from Ft. Sam,Houston. It's about a PEB(Physical Evaluation Board). I might get kicked out or medically discharged/retired because I'm not deployable because I have PTSD, Hep C, & a Permnt Profile(P3 Profile). I have PTSD from my childhood, but idk how I got infected with Hep C.
I think it was when I was Active Duty Army @ Ft.Hood from sex or a roomate using my razor or toothbrush. This ***** ugh :'-( I need some support!!!!

AD's are used during treatment, I've never heard of them being used for Hep C.  But I suppose if it upsets you that much, you would want something.  I always thought true depression was a clinical condition because of seratonin (sp), and that's what happens on meds it reduces the production.
