Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Clinical Global Impression-Change Scale score [ Time Frame: End of Month 1, End of Month 2, End of Month 3 ]
    Utilized to measure any improvement or worsening of symptoms relative to a baseline state at enrollment


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Clinical Global Impression-Severity Scale Score [ Time Frame: Enrollment, End of Month 1, End of Month 2, End of Month 3 ]
    Utilized to measure overall tremor severity

  • Washington Heights Inwood Genetic Study of Essential Tremor (WHIGET) Tremor Rating Scale [ Time Frame: Enrollment, End of Month 1, End of Month 2, End of Month 3 ]
    Utilized to measure overall tremor severity

  • Quality of Life in Essential Tremor Questionnaire [ Time Frame: Enrollment, End of Month 1, End of Month 2, End of Month 3 ]
    Utilized to measure the impact tremor has on overall quality of life
