Abstract

We have conducted a preliminary open trial of the effect of lamotrigine in essential tremor. At doses of 6 and 12.5 mg day-1 patients showed an improvement in the mean score for the tremor assessed using the functional cup method. At higher doses the improvement was no longer obtained. It is proposed that low doses of lamotrigine may be of value in the treatment of essential tremor.
