  • Perceived effectiveness for Tremor(s): Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Parkinson's Disease: Major
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 10 x 25 mg-100 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This medication appears to be the primary building block with individuals having the type that I have (Mainly tremors and speech). It all too often happens that you feel so good that you fail to realize that it is time for another dose. Stress is a big factor in the degree of symptoms experienced. In stressful situations I sometimes take an addition pill. This seems to help.
