user of alprazplam by Dr.Okum

Dear Okun,

Is there any likelihood that a person's long term use of alprazolam (Xanax,seroquel,lexapro,besquil, silinox)
might cause tremors,Essential tremor, Familial tremor, Hand tremor?

Is it leading to a possible diagnosis of parkinson's disease?



to help the PD patients aware the diseases and encourage to set up support groups to educate the patients and their immediate families

We do not believe it leads to PD.

It may however enhance an already present tremor like essential tremor or physiological tremor.
