    I am a 58 yr old woman living in the Midwest. I have Bipolar 1 and was diagnosed 13 years ago. (I had been treated for 12 year for misdiagnosed depression)

    The medications I take are Lithium, Lorazepam(Ativan) and Lamotrigine(Lamictal). I have had terrible tremors for many years. I always blamed the Lithium but the doctor lowered it to 300 mg and I was no better. Finally, he lowered the Lamotrigine(Lamictal) and the tremors are reducing. Happy about that. Please note that Lamictal can cause tremors. It's in the literature.
