Doctor :   Are you there ?
User :   yes

Doctor :   and that would have caused weakness
User :   why
Doctor :   Palpitation will result or be associated with tachycardia ( fast heart beat ) where the perfusion of the blood to the body reduces due to short transfer time , hence giving a temporary weakness
Doctor :   And palpitation is a common symptom in anxiety disorder and also could be due to endep ( starting side effect )
User :   and why is it at time that6 if i get up then i feel my heart racing
Doctor :   since when is this happening ?
User :   since i have been on endep
Doctor :   it could be due to the drug ,as palpitation is one of the side effect
