Best med for controlling tremor?

Recommended Posts

I have had Parkinson's for more than 2 years, but have refrained from taking meds.  I am considering taking medication to control the tremor in my right hand and arm..   In your experience, what is the most effective medication for controlling Parkinson's tremor?  Thanks, Manolo.

If you are considered young onset, up to 50 years old, they will usually start with a dopamine agonist, like Mirapex or Requip. If you are older onset, they may try Sinemet, Stalevo, or Rytary.

Once again, this is just a guess because I don't know what other symptoms you may have.

I hope this helps and please keep me posted.
