Question: Hi Doctor,
Iam thinking of taking Swine Flu H1N1 vaccine, but i have high SGPT count(from liver function test) and also taking anti depressant tablets(escitalopram 5mg and amisulphride 50mg) and . Will this interfere with the vaccine in any form or shall I go ahead and take the vaccine ? What is the name of the vaccine that should be taken for the same ?

Thank you.
