Decoding Health Issues/phasing Off Meds
So I wanted to reach out on this as it's in regards to someone I love dearly (as we all do), my mother.
Background: My Mom is in her mid 60's, a type 2 diabetic, has a faulty heart valve, hypothyroid issues, some intermittent depression/anxiety from my sister's suicide, but is a generally loving and happy person. She dabbles in and out of BP and isn't necessarily a big eater nor does she eat crap. She grazes and eats mostly random veggies, but isn't perfect and likes things like white wine and will cheat every now and then on carbs or things, but never really goes too "off the rails".
My concern, as of late, is that she's starting to develop a fairly formidable tremor. Tremors seem to run in her family on a mild level and although she is not shaking from head to toe, when a joint or elbow is resting on a table her arms shake back-and-forth in a pretty concerning manner. My suspicion is that perhaps her slew of meds could be at play with this:
Fluoxetine HCL (Prozac) 30 mg once in the am. For depression
