    I was diagnosed with essential tremors 2+ years ago and I'm taking 3 primidone 3 times a day. I just found out my forgetfulness is coming from the primidone! I am considering not taking the primidone. I think I rather have my memory and put up with The tremors. I am a 74 year old male. Any other suggestions?

    I'm taking 250mg of Primidone every morning for my essential tremor. Have been doing this for about 8 years. In the past several years, I'm having these wild, crazy dreams almost every night. Has anyone had the same experience?
    Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    I was diagnosed with essential tremor around six months ago. My doctor put me on Primidone and I am suffering greatly with dry eyes. Some days I just have to go to bed and close my eyes. Watching TV, reading, or being in bright light only seems to make it worse. I haven't seen my optometrist yet. I've tried every eye drop in the pharmacy. Does anyone have any good advice?
