I just started taking bupropion HCL XL 150 mg once

I just started taking bupropion HCL XL 150 mg once a day today. I weened myself off of sertraline 150 mg a day up until today. Ending with 50 m g a day. I am having a numb, tingling feeling in my face and head. When I take deep breaths, it heightens. I took the pill about 2 hours ago. Is this some sort of side effect?

Can bupropion HCL xl be the cause of my having plantar fascitis or neuropathy? I have taken bupropion HCl xl 300 mg for app. 5 to 6 years. I am 58 yrs old. I have had plantar fascitis for 4 or more years and have had surgery on my right foot. I started taking bupropion because I had to force myself to go to work and I ask the Dr. to for an antidepressant the would not make me gain weight. I am now retired and my feet have gotten worse not better. What major withdrawal symptoms can I expect if i decide to quit taking buproprion? Once you have neuopathy can you reverse it if it is cause by a drug?
