In brief: Variable
Stimulants like caffeine increase the shaking, sedatives, like alcohol decrease.
Stress worsens, calm improves. Stress management , relaxation training, biofeedback may work. Meds include beta-blockers, propanalol, but could try ativan, valium, etc. Have seen good outcomes with primidone, if can tolerate side effects, and xanax (alprazolam).
