Tremor, Essential

Also known as: Essential Tremor / Tremors, Essential / Essential tremor (hereditary) / Benign essential tremor / Familial tremor

DrugDrug NameDrug Description
DB01068ClonazepamA benzodiazepine used to treat various seizures, including myotonic or atonic seizures, photosensitive epilepsy, and absence seizures, although tolerance may develop [FDA Label] [L5572, F3763, F3787, F3796]. The agent has also been indicated for treating panic disorder [FDA Label] [A175438, L5572, F3763, F3787, F3796]. The mechanism of action appears to involve the enhancement of gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor responses [FDA Label] [A175438, A175441, L5572, F3763, F3787, F3796]. Since being first patented in 1960 and then released for sale from Roche in the US in 1975 [T469, T472], clonazepam has experienced a storied history in the treatment of the aforementioned medical conditions. Now available as a generic medication, the agent continues to see exceptionally high use as millions of prescriptions are written for the medication internationally every year. Unfortunately, however, like most benzodiazepines, clonazepam use has also been associated with recreational use and drug abuse [FDA Label] [L5572, F3763, F3787, F3796].
DB00794PrimidoneAn antiepileptic agent related to the barbiturates; it is partly metabolized to phenobarbital in the body and owes some of its actions to this metabolite. Adverse effects are reported to be more frequent than with phenobarbital. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p309)
DB00571PropranololPropranolol is a racemic mixture of 2 enantiomers where the S(-)-enantiomer has approximately 100 times the binding affinity for beta adrenergic receptors.[L6904] Propranolol is used to treat a number of conditions but most commonly is used for hypertension.[L6901,L6904,L6907] Propranolol was granted FDA approval on 13 November 1967.[L6904]
DB00273TopiramateTopiramate is a sulfamate-substituted monosaccharide with some activity against carbonic anhydrase.[A175225] It was conceived as part of the efforts to generate analogs of fructose-1,6-diphosphate to block gluconeogenesis in which topiramate was a synthetic intermediate. Analyzing its similarity to acetazolamide, researchers decided to study its capability as an anticonvulsant agent where was shown to be highly active against maximal electroshock seizure and to present a long duration of action.[A175249] Structurally, topiramate does not resemble a normal therapeutic agent as it presents a very high concentration of oxygen. The oxygen atoms in the topiramate molecule are expected to function as acceptors for hydrogen-bond formation while its amide group serves as an important hydrogen donor.[A175249] Topiramate has been approved in Europe since 2003, in the UK in 1995[A175243] and in the US since 2004. This drug has been approved for a number of conditions and in 2014 it was approved for the prevention of migraine in children.[A175231]
