  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for tremor in hands)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Sometimes
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 20 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I used it for tremor. This was before the PD dx. Or it seemed to keep me from getting jumpy/overexicited/shakey when i was around a group of people. The new psych doc recommended discontinuing it. The neuro doc said it can't stop PD tremor. So, i didn't push to have the rx renewed.

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for tremor in hands)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 40 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Without Inderal I would not be able to take the dose of lithium I need to stay more stable. Before I could hardly sign my name and that was a very present and constant reminder to me of my illness. Within half an hour of taking my first dose, the hand tremors virtually disappeared and I had the unexpected benefit of my anxiety almost disappearing as well. I haven't had any side effects that give me problems
