anti-depressants and antibiotics
My doctor said that when I am on antibiotics that it would not affect the anti-depressants, yet I feel very tired and drained. Could it be affecting it in some way?

Abtidepressants themselves, depending on which ones you are taking and in what dose, can, especially in the forst couple of weeks, make one feel extra tired and weary, and then this tends to improve. Generally, antibiotics ought not to affect the way your body deals with the antidepressants
