Anti Viral Drugs

I was on ant-viral drug (Famciclover) for treatment of Shingles when I had my Dr. do an HIV test.  I can not recall where I read that you should not test when on an anti viral because it could effect the test.

Can anybody unequivically ( i think that is the spelling ) deny or confirm?   15 months after possible exposure.

Definitely no effect on the test.
You're negative
