I was diagnosed about 12 years ago with essential tremor (by a neurologist, after ruling out Parkinson's), and have taken atenolol, which was later changed to propanolol with great success. I take 2 40 mg pills each day, and it works perfectly. If I skip a dose I notice the slight shaking immediately comes back. Why won't my Doctor refill this prescription on a long term basis? I have to go back to see the Doctor in order to get my prescription refilled again. I feel like it's just for the money, as I have no other condition or problems that would otherwise make me go into the office. Is there any alternative in a case like this?
I just located this posting. I take her friend along regularly three or four times a day. Your doctors concern is well found it. It can lower your blood pressure dramatically. I learned this the hard way when I fainted a couple of months ago. I cut back a couple of pills a day and I am still getting most of the benefit but without lowering my blood pressure so dangerously.
