I was a police officer when my tremor became so bad I couldn't hide it any longer. It took a while and several meds before the tried and true primidone at a very high dose worked. Lots of headaches and dizziness in the beginning but now my body is accustomed to it and there are no side effects, except the obvious ... I don't shake anymore! When I retired, I decided to stop taking primidone since it no longer mattered I had a steady hand, but found the tremor returned and that was truly disappointing, so I am back on the med and steady almost all the time. Just wanted to share a success story. Perhaps there is something out there for you too! I hope so.
