WELLBUTRIN SR ...Side Effect? Please help!

I am taking welbutrin SR and just increased my dosage to 200mg about three days ago. (today is my fourth dose)

I've noticed my muscles have a tremor/shaking issue...For instance when my wrist is in the relaxed position my hand is fine. Once I lift my wrist, my hand starts shaking rapidly. Is this normal or something I should be concerned about?

Please help, I'm kind of nervous. Thanks

What dose were you on before the increase? How long were you on that dose? You can have side effects with an increase. Does your Dr have a number you can call over the weekend? Wellbrutrin is one of the more stimulating meds, as you probably already know. If you can't get in touch with your Dr I recommend calling your pharmacist to ask if this is a possible side effect.

She told me to take 100mg per day for one week and then start taking two per day. Everything feels super jolt-y so I think I'm gonna just start taking one again. I don't know how to reach her outside of an appointment =\   I see her Friday so I'm trying to hang in there.
I'm also tapering off tramadol right now. I think my withdrawals are mixing with Wellbutrin side effects. Maybe? This feeling is just really scary.

I also have a major issue with depth perception at night now. I can't really drive because of it.
