I have tried fycompa. I found that it seemed to help quite a bit initially, but after a few weeks, it was no longer effective. I had been taking 2 mg. and I increased it for a few days to 4 mg. to see if it would continue to help. It did not, so I tapered off and returned to gabapentin, the drug I had been taking for many years. (The fycompa is also very costly, even with insurance coverage.)
My tremor has become worse over time and I am now exploring the possibility of getting the spinal cord stimulator implanted. I have severe back pain, for which spinal cord stimulation is often used. Since I have a back back problem, I may be eligible for coverage for the surgery.
I will keep everyone posted.
