Does Anyone Take Plaquenil With An Antidepressant?

Does Anyone Take Plaquenil With An Antidepressant?

I am on Plaquenil, and my doctor wants me to take an antidepressant (specifically Prozac) for both depression and anxiety. I am scared to mix antidepressants and Plaquenil due to reading that these can possibly interact, but I’m tired of suffering from mental health issues. Does anyone safely take Plaquenil with an antidepressant? Prozac to be specific, or any of the SSRIs? Thank you so much in advance.

Anxiety, Chest Pain And Other Symptoms

Anxiety, Chest Pain And Other Symptoms

Recently I have been having relentless anxiety attacks, almost debilitating. Its usually at night. Now, its got to the point where I don't even want to come home because I do not like where I live and these episodes are affecting my life! I have a lot of supplements that do help a lot, some more for sleep. I do NOT want anxiety meds for sure! Does anyone else have any recommendations,, experience or natural remedies that work for you? I try the breathing. Prayer is my biggest defense.
