In brief: Not necessarily

If indicated, for psychotic depression or schizoaffective disorder, you may need to take both an antidepressant and an antipsychotic.

If that is what your doctor has prescribed, then that doctor has considered potential interactions and feels the benefit is greater than the risk. If more than one doctor is prescribing for you, you need to be sure that each knows exactly what you are already taking.
