In brief: Not usually

The association may be more related to the reason why you are taking these two medications, that being some form of depression which has gone on long enough.
Occasionally medications can over-push the nervous system and lead to insomnia and more fatigue, dark circles. Rarely medication can a affect the blood count or cause forms of anemia. Consult a physician to monitor for side effects.
