Can you provide some clarification pleased.
Are they positive emotions or painful emotions? Are the emotions heightened because now there is more energy with an increased intensity?

In brief: It

It is a little bit unclear what kind of changes in emotions you are referring to.
However, wellbutrin (bupropion) may enhance energy and motivation early in treatment due to its effects on neurotransmitters norepinephrine and dopamine. Therefore, it is quite possible that what you are experiencing is due to the effect of the drug itself. In some cases wellbutrin (bupropion) is known to interfere with sleep. If this happens, it is a good idea to take the second of the two doses no later than 3 pm.
