  • If you are feeling that way then you need to switch asap. Im on them and dont feel that way. Thankfully. But yes it happens. Switch and always remember that there are tons of meds because the all react diff with diff ppl. You need to find what works for you. GL!

  • I CAN happen. And, as Steph319 said, you need to switch ASAP. It's a side effect.

  • For people who are severly depressed a med can give them just enough energy to do get off the couch and end it. That's why meds should never be perscribed without accompanying therapy.

    Plus, anything that changes your brain chemicals impacts how you think.

  • Yes, and that means you need a different med! Contact your Doc ASAP!!!

  • I would call your doctor and tell him or his nurse what is going on. I was on Wellbutrin at one time and had a very horrible reaction. I was taking it after the death of my mom.
