Propranolol dosage essential tremor

Common Questions and Answers about Propranolol dosage essential tremor


Avatar f tn Reason being that if the physical symptoms go away, then the anxiety does too. (Propranolol is prescribed for people who have essential tremor. Some times these people who have the tremor become anxious because of it. Once the tremor is gone, generally by taking the beta blocker, then the anxiety goes too.) This is not the case with everyone as it was not with me, that's for sure. It is very common to prescribe the two together.
Avatar n tn I saw a neurologist and was diagnosed with an essential tremor. he tried me on propranolol 120mg but it didn't really help...
Avatar n tn Taking 20 mg of propranolol daily since then up until 2 weeks ago when they upped my dosage to 80 mg. 9 months ago I started having vertigo with some nystagmus. CT was negative, vestibular testing negative and eply did not help. Nystagmus is pretty much gone but still feel very off balance and dizzy and adding migraines to the list of complaints.
Avatar m tn However I will try to provide you with some useful information on Benign Essential Tremor (BET) and its treatment. As you mention, propranolol is a commonly used and effective treatment for BET, but can not be used in people with asthma and some other pulmonary problems. Other treatments for BET include primidone, or mysoline. The main side effect is sedation and it can cause allergic reaction in some people.
Avatar m tn But if it's just tremor without a cause, I think the kind you have is an essential tremor because the alcohol you mentioned reduced the intensity. The National Institutes of Health are testing 1-octanol, similar to alcohol, to treat essential tremor with success, go to this website and see if they've got a trial you can sign up for relating to essential tremor for that medicine: www.ninds.nih.
Avatar m tn This not only sorted out the heart and blood pressure but also stopped the inner tremor. I know its the Propranolol working, because if I stop the medication the tremor returns. It also returns if I have significant alcohol, because apparently alcohol stops the med working. It might be worth others trying Propranolol (low dose) to see if it reduces symptoms.
Avatar n tn I have taken Prilosec, Nexium, Aciphex, and Prevacid up to twice a day at the max dosage. I recently had an eye exam but the doc just said i had dry eye and would need glasses when I hit my 50's. Not real helpful.
Avatar f tn Parkinson's is a possibility, but generally this is genetic--do any of your family members have Parkinson's, or is there a history of Parkinson's in your family? Males are more likely to experience early-onset Parkinson's than females are, which should quell your worries a bit. Typically, the tremor is unilateral (in one particular arm), and the patient begins to have trouble walking, judging distances/being spatially aware, and difficulty with speaking, chewing, and swallowing (dysphagia).
534785 tn?1329595808 Just as I predicted he would do, he upped my dosage of Propranolol from 60mg once daily to 80mg once daily, as I told him it helped a lot with my 'essential tremor', and that I thought it helped with my headaches a little bit...he said I was on a low dose of Propranolol to begin with and that the next step to take would be to increase the dosage to see if this gets rid of my headaches, which I was still having daily.
959034 tn?1253675076 Ophthalmic beta-blockers undergo significant systemic absorption and may also interact. In addition, propranolol and other beta-blockers may reduce the CYP450 hepatic metabolism of theophylline, and serum theophylline levels may be increased. MANAGEMENT: Oral and ophthalmic nonselective beta-blockers (e.g.
461838 tn?1255793816 Hey, a fellow ET sufferer!!! Greetings!! I have had an essential tremor for many years, and when I started treatment, at about week four or five I noticed my ET got a lot worse to the point of asking my doctor for something to relieve it. My hepatologist gave me Propranolol, and after taking it in very low dosage for a week, I've noticed my tremor is not as bad. My hep doc said it will probably resolve and go back to normal after tx. I've also heard that Primidone can help.
Avatar n tn Vestibular dr said silent migraines, never really had migraines until about 3 months ago (after the vestibular testing) Tried 4 different migraine meds allergic to all 4. Almost 2 years ago I was diagnosed with Essential Tremor and I also have hypothyroidism. Where I stand now, just had my dosage of propranolol upped from 20 mg to 80 mg and the tremors got worse, and now I have a twitch on the inside of each upper arm. I still have the dizziness now without nystagmus a majority of the time.
968908 tn?1274874715 This will likely resolve your current symptomatology that you are experiencing with Propranolol. Dosage equivalency for Atenolol to your current Propranolol dosage is 50 milligrams once daily. In the interim (until you can visit a physician), I would suggest heading for the emergency department if you feel the situation warrants it. Such symptomatology is generally progressive with this drug. Everything you have described suggests intolerance.
6430402 tn?1381232875 I get them too when my anxiety is very high and though it must be essential tremor. My Dr seems to think it's anxiety. No treatment at all right now, not even for your anxiety? I'm so sorry to hear this. What Dr gave you these diagnosis's?
Avatar n tn I went to see my doctor on the fourth day--He prescribed Zolpidem, which I have been taken since. Interestingly enough, even under the influence of the sleeping pill, the tremor wake me up, but they are short-lived since I go back to sleep almost immediately. My doctor said to take the medicine for about two weeks and essencially placed me on a "wait-and-see" mode. My concern at this point is "how long can I possobly survived on this medicine.
Avatar f tn I'm guessing they're most likely those of being hypothyroid, but it would be good if you could tell us what symptoms you have so we know for sure. Did the doctor say what dosage of medication she would give you? I think you're going to need more than a "small dose", with labs like yours, but it's probably good to start out small anyway. Replacement hormone will probably go a long way toward alleviating your symptoms. I agree with your doctor about the bisoprolol...
1318483 tn?1318350782 These have gotten stronger and more frequent. I get them in my left foot, both thighs, back and butt. I have developed an essential tremor (most notable in my hands) and that is getting stronger, too. Why am I having so many different areas of jerks and severe muscle spasm activity?? The ER visits are getting old. The pain involved with the spasms is getting old. And I feel myself slipping in internal desire to fight. I am tired. My quality of life is severly compromised.
567228 tn?1318359066 Physiological Effects of L-Carnitine L-Carnitine's effects are related to its ability to inhibit the entry of both thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronne (T3) into the cell nucleus. This is important because entry into the cell nucleus is essential for thyroid hormone to cause the effects commonly associated with hyperthyroidism. In clinical observations, L-carnitine reduces effects in both mild hyperthyroidism and in the severe form of hyperthyroidism known as thyroid storm.
