Essential tremors, primarily dominant hand, arm. Octanoic acid ??? Mg. per day? Other? Thanks for your help.Have no cell phone. Please email, call or respond on this site if possible. Thank you.
Hello and thank you for your question.
Essential tremor is a type of involuntary shaking movement in which no cause can be identified.
Sometimes overactive thyroid can also cause ET.
Medications like Propranolol (beta blockers) or primidonne is prescribed to treat ET.
Octanoic acid is usually prescribed with alcohol-responsive essential tremor. Usually the dosage effective is 4mg/kg.
please get back to me if you have any further questions. Thank you.
I've found that a small glass of wine allows me to pay bills, write a grocery list, etc.Read the lit., so maby this will help. Thanks!
You're welcome. Yes a glass of wine can help too.
however usually beta blockers are prescribed to prevent ET.
Don't have hypertension...what effect on me?
Propranolol is not only prescribed for high blood pressure but also for ET and anxiety.
