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.

It takes the edge off but I don’t ever get any true relief. My PC doesn’t want to prescribe… read more

Is Anyone On Lexapro?

Is Anyone On Lexapro?

I am starting on Lexapro today and I'm wondering if anyone has had experience with it. I was always the cheerful morning person with an annoyingly positive attitude so this is hope for me to feel "normal" again.
