Very bad shakes used to be an alkie
Dear Doc,

Hope you well and that you could pls give me some advice. My mother was an alkie for a long time but has since stopped (been about 5 years), she experiences extreamely bad shakes sometimes it's her hands but now it's gotten so bad she can't hold anything and her legs are shaking constantly too. She normally uses rexten (think that's what it's called) or calmeds is there anything that you would maybe recommend medicine wise?

Thank you,
