Anyone else get worse depression and anxiety after starting hydroxycloroquine?

I've only been on it for a week, and even if it is contributing to the issues it's definitely not the main cause, since my mental health first started to get bad again a month ago when I got hired for this job, but I'm wondering if the hydroxycloroquine could also be having a negative effect on my mental health.

    I experienced a shift in my mental health too. My anxiety got worse after starting and I've noticed with time I started to feel better as my body adjusted to the medication. I've missed a week before and it seems when I start back up anxiety hits me like a brick wall for about two weeks until my body evens out again.

    I had the opposite effect, i used to take methotrexate which made mine so much worse. Im not on hydroxychloroquine and its helped. But it took me about a year to get adjusted.
