Hand tremors

Posted by basketcase @basketcase, Dec 8, 2018

Hi Im not sure if this has been discussed before please point me in the right direction if it has. I ve been having hand tremors for a few years now and I reckon its getting worse. I have been on Chlolipmarine Hydrochloride for about 20 years for anxiety, depression and obsessive thinking. They have always worked for me but i think one of the side effects is hand tremors. Ive had blood tests and all ok there. the Doctor suggested coming off the CH and trying Sertraline, which I did but just felt like sleeping all the time, so back to CH. Its like Ive got too much adrenaline! It is worse in company and at work even though Im not stressed or anxious. As Im typing this my hands are shaking. It doesn’t stop me doing anything but its annoying and I often have to drink holding the cup or glass with both hands and my writing is awful. My Uncle had awful hand tremors but was also on antidepressants, my mother too but less so. Any advice would be most welcome.

I haven’t been following this discussion so excuse me for butting in but I’m just curious about an ad I ran across today for a Neuromodulation unit for the treatment of Essential Tremors. I was interested if these devices are actually helpful. This particular one must be quite costly since the minimum monthly payment is $159.00. However it only costs $99.00 to try for 60 days.
I don’t have Tremors, my nemesis is Epilepsy and there are Neuromodulating devices to control seizures however research is showing it works better over time and I was wondering if the same was true of these devices.
Here is the ad I saw,

@jakedduck1 I don't suppose Medicare covers it.

No, not covered by Medicare or any other insurance from what I read.
