    This made a significant difference in my tremors, they are not gone but are considerably less noticable. I work in an office, typing is a large part of my day and I have noticed I have to correct less double letter errors caused by the tremors.

    It seems after taking the medication for two months the tremors had returned some. I had also started to develop headaches and dreams that were scary as if hallucinating. Also developed constipation even with increasing fiber and fruit intake. Had to stop taking the medication. Tremors have retuned 100% but side affects were worse for me.

    My tremors were so bad i could not hold a spoon eating soup. Could not bring the coffee pot to my cup to pour, with one hand. I now can hold the spoon and the coffee pot. Yes there is some shaking but it is much easier. I would say my improvement percentage wise has been 50%.
