Maybe.: Some meds can affect mood in some people, but also, if you are getting vancomycin injections, you're pretty sick. Sickness is depressing all by itself! As well as exhausting, inconvenient, & often painful. None of which is conducive to happiness. Tell your doc. Rest, eat properly (plenty of fruits and veggies), get enough sleep, & try to smile once a day at least.! This all helps you get better
