  • Perceived effectiveness for Essential Tremor: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Migraine headaches: Moderate
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 50 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I am taking a low dose of this because of kidney disease, so be careful of that factor. I am taking it for seizures, chronic migraine headaches, and essential tremor. It works best on the headaches, though it isn't perfect. Same with the essential tremor, although I can use my hands better and write my name well again. It has helped my daily life in that it has reduced the number and severity of most of my headaches, not all of them. I still get bad ones. So it's had a mixed benefit. I'd still choose to take it because it does give enough relief to be helpful.
Cost: < $25 monthly
