    I can relate. I have had trembling hands at various times with changes in amount of Depakote. Following a hospitalization two years ago, I was receiving injections twice a month of a med I’ve forgotten the name of. Significant tremors were side effects, well as drooling (oh, joy!). The tremors lessened over time but are still there even though It has been a year since I stopped receiving the injections, mostly in one hand. Granted, a little tremor is preferable to any of the emotionally and financially expensive results of a manic episode.

    I was on Wellbutrin for a very very long time, had no side effect and helped me a lot. But then I lost my health insurance and switched it from brand name to generic. Trembling hands was just one of it’s side effects I experienced. It got so bad that I had to stop taking it.

    Look into that.

    I also have trembling hands with Wellbutrin. I used to have beautiful flowing handwriting. Now I have to print to write anything legible but I cannot print for more than a few minutes before my writing starts to break down becoming hard to read. My signature is a chicken scratch at the beginning and illegible at the end (I have a long last name). I would like to ask my Psychiatrist if we could lower the dose but I have finally experienced stability for the past 8 months. That is like a miracle for someone who rapid cycles a couple of times a month. I’ll talk to him about it anyway. I’ve also become very hoarse but I’m not sure if that’s a side effect or not however it started after beginning the Wellbutrin and Abilify.
