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.
