Fortunately, I have not had Covid to this point (unless completely asymptomatic).

That said, I follow the science and anecdotes on reddit almost daily. I have seen anecdotal reports from -some- claiming many of the ADHD stimulant class of meds stopped working for them after having a Covid infection (Vyvanse for example).

There's also a couple studies on pub med (and/or pre-prints on MedRXIV) that found Lithium levels can go up after a bout with Covid. Perhaps this is due to gut microbiome or renal processing changes - but whatever the case there have been reports of toxicity occuring in people taking the same dose after recovering from Covid.

I haven't seen reports of people saying antidepressants/anti-psychotics have stopped working (or don't work) after Covid. Many people do experience brain fog/fatigue after recovering from the infection though, so in that sense the drugs may become less effective as they're up against more intense issues.
