medications affecting blood test results
This may seem like a silly question, but would taking any of the following medications, Mavik Trandolapril, Hydrochlorothiazide, Crestor, and Citalopram affect the accuracy or sensitivity of a syphilis MHA-TP test?

No medicine is known to have any effect on syphilis blood tests.  Certainly there is no reason to suspect that the ones you list would have any effect.  As long as testing is done at least 6 weeks after the last possible exposure, a negative result will be completely reliable.
