Abstract

Essential tremor (ET) is the most prevalent tremor syndrome. It commonly affects the hands, head, voice, and other body parts. Appropriate management begins with correct diagnosis. Primidone and propranolol are the first-line medications for the treatment for ET, but several other medications may also provide benefit. In patients with medically refractory tremor, alternative therapies, including surgery or injections of botulinum toxin, may be considered.
