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.

No, & never again will I take those awful meds.
God bless everyone in finding a healthier way

Benlysta And Insomnia

Benlysta And Insomnia

Does anyone else who is taking Benlysta have problems with insomnia the day of and few days following treatment? If so, does anyone have any
tips on helping it. I'm super exhausted for 2-3 days after my treatment but unable to sleep. Then around day 3, everything gets back to normal again. Thanks, and God bless!

A MyLupusTeam Member

Most definitely. Insomnia and an abundant supply of energy lasts for approx three days after infusion. Then anxiety sets in for another week. I also, take Benadryl for a few days after to sleep.
