Feel very depressed for no apparent reason. Could it be from my antibiotic oxytetracycline?

I've been takong oxytetracycline for 1 week now. Have started to feel very very down, crying, having disturbing dreams etc. The only thing I can think of is the antibiotics. Anyone else have this reaction?

I've taken it on and off for years(for Rosacea) and never noticed any side effects.

It could possibly be the abx, have you checked the side effects on the info leaflet?

Could be. Some antibiotics make me feel dreadful. Speak to your GP or at least pharmacist.
