I have essential tremors in my hands, spreading to my legs, and I have been taking mysoline prescribed from a military facility.

After taking the initial dosage as prescribed, I almost immediately went into a sleep pattern for 3 days, not being able to stand, suffering severe vertigo and nausea. It took my body almost a week to fully return to normal. My physician advised that I cease taking the medication,

Comment:
My neurologist calls my condition benign tremors. Started with a very low dosage to adjust to the drug. I've been on a 100 mg dosage for over two years. The drugs works very well. No tremors and no side effects. Every drug should work this well.
