Starting any medication can be a little anxiety-provoking, and responses vary. If you have any family history of bipolar disorder, i hope you informed your physician? It's possible these symptoms are temporary &will extinguish themselves -- but please tell your own physician what you're experiencing. His/her knowledge of your personal history makes him/her the best person to ask about this.
