Thank you for postig your query.
) is a beta blocker
, which is very effective in controlling essential tremors (including hand and voice tremors). The usual starting dose is 40 mg taken once daily, and it can be increased to 160 mg daily, depending on the response. It is available in a long-acting preparation, Ciplar LA, which can be taken once daily in morning, after breakfast.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any more queries.
