I started Bupropion 100 mg this past Monday after going

I started Bupropion 100 mg this past Monday after going off Cymbalta 60 am 60 pm last week. I feel terrible, light headed, shaking inside and outside. Dr decreased alprazolam .25 from 3 to 1 a day all at same time. I have back injury and am on oxycodone 5/325 up to 3 times a day and Nucynta 50 mg 2 times a day but after having a regular back procedure I decrease oxycodone down to 1 a day, then I decrease Nucynta to 1 a day. These decreases are done by me and have done this for a few years. Is problem probably coming from new script maybe or have I been dropping meds too fast.

I am taking 150 mg of Bupropion xl one time daily. Began this med 17 days ago. I seem to be having several of the side effects...dixxiness, constipation, tremor, blurred vision. A week ago I was in the doctors office with extreme acidity and constipation. At that time my blood pressure was elevated. Very unusual for me since it generall runs low normal. Sever days later, in the office for a follow up, my blood pressure was 67 over 40something. I left a message for the doc on Friday so hope to get a call tomorrow, Monday but after reading that these are symptoms of the side effects of this med want to skip the dose I would normally take tomorrow morning until I talk with the doc. Is that ok?
