I also have lupus, I was on Wellbutrin, made me feel the same. My dr took me off and put me on Prozac, much better!

if you are currently on prednisone, that may be the reason for mood swings. Although the drug helps a multitude of medical problems, it also has many side effects. Depression and mood swings are just 2 of them...I am not aware of any other psychological side effects. I am currently on prednisone, and my mood is rotten. I also get slight tremors of the arms, sweating and shortness of breath. Hope this info is of some help to you

Lupus and mood swings
I have lupus and my mood swings have caused everything from relationship problems to problems with employment. What I find is that it makes my emotional skin thin so almost anything sets me off. It is not just the prednisone. I am worse on it, but also the other meds make it worse, however it is an underlying problem. I wonder sometimes if it isn't the amount of fatigue and pain we have to deal with on the ongoing basis, or if the problem with cortisol in our systems might play a role, but no doctor will answer me.
