Apparently, SSRI drugs have an antifungal effect.
Which begs the question, what other pharmaceutical drugs that aren't antibiotics ARE actually antibacterial? There's a very clear link between AntiRetroViral drugs that HIV patients take and digestive issues. ARVs are notorious for causing digestive upset, as are antibiotics. Nobody has been able to explain to me why ARVs cause digestive upset and potentially lifelong GI issues.
I took Doxycycline once and I lost about 8 pounds in the first week because the medication gave me profuse diarrhea. I had some shaving rashes that I put Hydrocortisone (a steroid) cream on for several days and I noticed that my bowel movements were normal in consistency, but abnormal in terms of when they came out.
If SSRI drugs, which have no molecular similarity to antifungals have antifungal activity, is it much of a stretch to assume that a multitude of other pharmaceuticals may do the very same thing? If anyone can shed some light on this matter, that would be great.

Ahoy, poor science!
What a bunch of nonsense... Their effective antifungal doses are approximately 1-2 orders of magnitude higher than doses as SSRIs. Heck, you'd kill a lot of stuff at that concentration I'd wager...
