    My neurologist started me on 12.5m.g. at bedtime 2 weeks ago. I am to go to 25m.g. this week at bedtime. He is gradually working the dosage up to 50m.g. The first week I experienced headache and nausea. However that side effect has passed. I am anxious to see how I feel with the increased dosage this week. The hand tremor is some better, but still have jaw tremor which is my main concern.

    Have been on mysoline for the ten years for essential tremor and have been happy with the results. However, for the past couple of yeas, I'm finding myself becoming extremely irritable. I was contributing this behavior to the fact that I have been a caregiver for the past 3 years and it has become increasing difficult for me. Now I have cut back on the medication from 300 mgs/daily (2-50/mg ... Show Full Comment

    With anything I would like for it to work 100%. I have tremors that make me feel I am in a paint shaker! The drug at first gave me rushes through out my limbs and face. I've had tremors since 2006 and they say I'll always need the Med. or have an electrod put in my head. I choose the Med. I can always tell when it is time for the Med. I feel the tremors coming on or when I get excited or ... Show Full Comment

    Just started taking this a few days ago. I've had pretty bad tremors in my right hand for about 8 years, tried both propalanoyl (I'm sure that's spelled wrong) and inderal with no success. I take klonipin to sleep, which they also say can help with the tremors, but no luck. This past year I started shaking all over, and decided I HAD to try something else. My hands shaking were emba ... Show Full Comment
