If the tremor is bothersome, then you can try amantadine, it might help the tremor and will not cause the dyskinesias (extra movements) that you experienced when you increased the dose of sinemet. However, you have to be careful and watch for leg swelling.
If you are unable to tolerate this or it does not work, there are several others that can be tried, but these are usually a hit or miss. If it is really bothersome, DBS surgery is reliable in decreasing tremors--if you are willing and you have no symptoms of significant cognitive impairment.
