Step 4: Read and complete the decision guide to learn more about your symptoms.


Okay, good! Here's the next question.

Tremors may be caused by medications and other substances that stimulate the nervous system. Examples include:

- Certain medications for asthma, such as albuterol

- Pseudoephedrine, as found in many cold remedies

- Antipsychotic medications, such as chlorpromazine

- Caffeine

- Cocaine

Do you take any of these? Did you start taking a new medication just before your tremor began?

Yes, I take one of these or I've started a new medicine.

No, I take none of those and no new medicines.
