Tell your doctor immediately! I had the same where Fluoxetine put me in a Manic state then slowly made me suicidal and then I attempted suicide. You might need a lower dose or something else to keep a balance.

Are you sure you have been taking your medication as usual, or the excitement of a holiday has made you forget. Also the prospect of change on your holiday may be making you feel a bit disturbed. I hope you immprove in the next few days, if not visit your G.P. He/she should be able to give you some reassurance. i am glad you have managed work which is a big step, but don't rush life. See you get plenty of rest and do some deep breathing and relaxation exercses, That might help.
Take care(y)
