Strange feelings with mid-term usage of wellbutrin

I restarted wellbultrin about 2 moths ago. It starts to work (gives me concentration when i study) after 1-2 days. After 10-15 days, it makes me sleepy mildly but i don't want to sleep because i start to have vivid dreams and nightmares. Also it makes me forgetful (not forgetfulness exactly but it's difficult to explain and i can't find the right term even in Turkish) in daily life. I was already forgetful for many years but this is something different and worse. I'm not sure but it may be referred as brainfog.
I had to have a break a few days because of these side effects. And then i restarted wellbutrin about 15 days ago. Yesterday i had nightmares again. And today i felt as if i'm hearing for the first time some subjects which i'd already known.
Interestingly i felt same when i used 150 mg and 300 mg daily.
Is there anyone who experienced any side effects like me?
Do you think the dosage is too high or too low?
