From this study (1 day ago):
Interaction between Geodon and Celexa, developed Long QT syndrome. STOPPED taking GEODON, reduced Celexa to 20mg QD. Chest pressure, rapid heartbeat resolved. Over the past year started having chest pain again, take Nitro for every episode. No diagnosed condition. Just found out that there MAY be interaction between Celexa and Plaquenil that could also cause Long QT. Celexa and Geodon by themselves both can cause Long QT. Can't quit taking Celexa. Plaquenil is least effective.

F/54/Caucasion. Had yearly physical in 8/1/2000 - thyroid numbers good. Went on Wellbutrin to aid in smoking cessation. By 9/1/2000 - my thyroid had crashed - Hashimoto's was diagnosed and I have never been the same. I saved that bloodwork - before and after. As a former medical school student - I absolutely know there is a connection.
