Life changing.

Its been helping with the headaches as well as the myoclonus quite a lot and some of the shaking in my hands but not with any of the head tremors. The head tremors are the worse because my teeth chatter and I have a hard time focusing and Im told Topamax doesnt help with focus issues eithers.
