I have noticed the effect for about 8 to 10 months. The onset has been gradual. It happens when using the hand. It does not happen at rest. It doesn't take much; just picking up a water bottle to take a drink can cause the hand to shake, but not every time.
I have no disease that I am aware of and have not suffered a head injury. I do have some neck and joint pain for which glucosamine seems to be effective with cataflam.
As my question indicates, I am on previcid and statins. I also take some cataflam for the joint pain. I have noticed no loss of strength in the hand.

In reading your website earlier, I would guess at "essential tremor" This tremor occurs during not before or after. So, I hadn't missed the target just shaken it from time to time.
I have been on Lipitor for years. However, I was forced by the insurance company to switch to Simvastatin about a year ago. I take 80 mg in the evening and 10 mg of Zetia in the mornings.
