I have tremors on my left hand. I am on Amantrel 100 mg tds, Frisium 30 mg and Propranolol 40 mg. I have been through two stents in my heart, but I have no myocardial infarction. I am on beta blockers Valent 40mg od and Retorlix 5 mg od. My neurologist says this as Rubral syndrome and my very senior physician said this is more likely to be muscle weakness because through a strict regime I have come down to 99 kg from 140 kg in the past 19 months. I would like to slowly discontinue Frisium because it makes me drowsy. My question is, should I taper one medicine after another just to see what works best? The physician told me to stop all medication completely which I do not think as a great idea. Can you please help?
