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.
