Stress, caffeine and certain medicines may make the tremor worse. If that's the case for you, learn ways to reduce your stress and cut down on caffeinated beverages such as coffee, tea and soft drinks.
Some medications, including stimulants and antidepressants, may also affect your tremor. Ask your doctor if you are taking any medications that could be worsening your tremor.
