Hi, I was previously taking nifedipine for my raynauds but had to come off that as my blood pressure was too low and it caused dizziness. My rheumy today prescribed fluoxetine instead but I'm worried about taking it as it's an anti depressant and I'm not depressed! She didn't explain how it would help the raynauds so I'm reluctant to start taking it. I read on the raynauds website that the only drug licensed for raynauds is the nifedipine. Other drugs (like fluoxetine) are unlicensed. What does that mean? Does anyone else take it for raynauds and does it help? I'm also taking plaquenil and ibuprofen 400mg. Thank you xxx
