Off Cymbalta 60mg (duloxetine) and seroquel (100mg) for a week now....

Ok...maybe not such a smart thing dumping both drugs at once, but I just wanted to feel what it was like NOT to be dependent on them. The verdict is a bit mixed so far, but I'm persevering.
Now here's new one for you all, my most noticeable side effect is an unbelievable amount of energy. I can't stop doing things! I'm digging up my backyard (by hand) and planting a new lawn (from seed, with a new irrigation system that I designed and built), I'm constructing things (I'm also a recovering engineer), I'm repairing things around the house and yard (major things, things that several weeks ago I wouldn't have THOUGHT about doing myself). I'm working 12 hours a day (well, it is my company, but instead of just being there for 12 hours I'm really packing a lot in each day!).
So what is going on? Am I suddenly over all my depression? Or just running a 100 mph straight towards that brick wall.
Can anyone relate to this at all?
It's 1:25am (again) and still looking for things to do.
