Abstract

Drug-induced tremor is common in clinical practice and is usually easily treated by removing the offending drug(s). Recognition of drugs that can cause or worsen tremor is essential to avoid unnecessary diagnostic tests and more polypharmacy. Recognition of the major tremorogenic drugs and the features of the tremors they cause helps clinicians diagnose these movement disorders and recommend appropriate treatments.
