Since then he's been on 80 mg. propanalol. When his tremors seemed worse, he called the neurologist and got the 120 mg. He felt terrible on the higher dose, and it did not alleviate his tremors, so he returned to the 80 mg. I find if he keeps stress levels down, he does better. He was EXTREMELY handy; now he cannot even use a screwdriver without shaking.. I'll do the repairs if need be; otherwise, we have plumbers and electricians to do the work. At this point in our lives it's easier to hire the professionals than deal with the inordinate aches that follow home repairs and Parkinson's.

My husband took rasalgilene with no effect. Another neurologist put him on amantadine. I feel his tremors are worse, and he now has accidents with tableware and drinking glasses. He also seems to be sleeping more.
