In brief: Essential tremor

Possibly propanolol ( dosis has to be gradually increased) or primidone.
50% pts do not response to medical treatment. Brain stimulation there is for very frustrated pts. Some tremors may improve after drinking alcoholic beverages.

In brief: Try diff meds

Propranolol and Primidone are first-line, but other seizure medications are tried as well - such a Gabapentin or topirimate.
