As my friend, sapersells, says this would be a very unusual reaction to the drug itself but you might ask your doctor whether it might have been a placebo effect which sometimes occurs after starting an antidepressant. Also, antidepressants can occasionally provoke manic episodes in some users.
Well i don't know if i can actually relate. But upon starting lex, i felt good because i was taking steps towards fixing my problems (mainly depersonalization and panic attacks) and yes i was really jolly and enjoyed everything. I wouldn't say i was maniac because i was not doing nothing irrational you know, i don't think you are either. Despite, two weeks seems like a lot, i would definitely speak to your doctor!!
