Internal tremor: Dopamine agonists like rotigatine, ropinirole ; Pramipexole may help. Amantadine can curb dyskinesia from sinemet, (carbidopa and levodopa) but may not help much for inner tremor. Younger people often tolerate higher doses of artane/ trihexyphenidyl than elderly, the drug of choice for pd-related tremor. Beta blockers like Propranolol may also reduce this tremor. Ask your neurologist for guidance. Good luck.
