What are medications to treat multiple sclerosis tremors?

ANSWER

These problems are one of the hardest MS symptoms to treat. But some people get relief when they use medicines for other conditions, such as:

  • Acetazolamide (Diamox), which treats glaucoma and altitude sickness
  • Anti-anxiety drugs buspirone (Buspar) and clonazepam (Klonopin)
  • The antihistamine hydroxyzine (Atarax, Vistaril)
  • Isoniazid (INH), a tuberculosis drug
  • Primidone (Mysoline), a seizure medicine
  • Propranolol (Inderal), which treats heart problems, high blood pressure, and migraines
