Glad you have found medi's that work with your ET. I went to a neurologist with mine several years ago, and was told that they only thing out there was Atenelol. I had taken that for several year for BP, and it reversed on me and put me in the hospital. Now I can't take most of the BP medications out there (a whole class of medications). Guess I need to go to another neurologist and see what they recommend. Fran

It is great that your Tremors have been very responsive to the medication :-)
I went to have a peek at your SparkPage and to give you a Goodie, but unfortunately you don't have one. When you get time you might light to set one up and have it open so that others can drop by. This is a very good way to get support when we most need it - we will be able to leave little messages and the occasional goodie :-)
Because I can't leave one on your Page, I will leave one here:-)
I had very bad tremors in my hands for quite a few years. Finally went yo a neurologist and was diagnosed with E.S. and I'm taking Primidone and Enderol and my tremors are 99% better! I'm so happy with the results! I am hoping that all of you that have Essential Tremors can eventually get as good as I did!
