Short term memory.: Electroconvulsive therapy for depression has been given a scary reputation in movies, but it is actually an effective therapy which is appropriate in some cases of severe depression. Patients frequently have some memory loss surrounding the time of the procedure, and those memories are not recovered. However, electroconvulsive therapy is not thought to produce progressive memory loss.

Meds or surgery: The first line treatments for "essential" tremor include propanolol and primidone. These medications reduce the symptoms to the point that the patient is better able to function but they are not curative. In some cases, the tremor progresses to a point where the medications do not provide much help, and there are brain surgeries that may be considered at that point.
