  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for essential tremor)
  • Side effects
    Severe (hives (urticaria))
  • Adherence
    Never taken as prescribed
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 25 mg Twice daily
Advice & Tips: Hives is just bad luck. I liked the medication, but my hands broke out in hives and my face was starting to break out as well. The questionnaire is asking about terminated treatments and then asks how often I take it currently. Terminates=/=current. I never take it currently, but when I did take it, there was no difficulty.
