Primidone - has anyone tried this drug?

I have an essential tremor. It is there all the time whether I take any medication or not. Lithium exacerbates it in a big way. It effects me psychologically because its presence stresses me out, not as much as it used to, but it does. It effects me physically because it interferes with some of my daily activities.

Propranolol doesn't have a big effect on it any more - it's lost a lot of its effectiveness. I'm thinking of giving Primidone a go. The doctor mentioned it to me about 6 months ago, but at the time I could live with it so I didn't take him up on it. I think now I will ask if I can try it. It is a barbiturate type drug. I think it will probably make me sleepy and high for a few days when I first start it? I'm thinking a very low dose to start with, and build the dose up until I get the tremor relief I need (rather than the other way round). Has anyone tried this? Did it work? How did it effect you?
