Our expert says:
You have a real problem here. A member of my family is similarly affected, and so far we have found nothing other than beta blockers to be of any use. Fortunately, slow pulse was not a problem for us.
Unfortunately for you, beta blockers are the mainstay of treatment. There are a few other options, such as certain anticonvulsants used in the treatment of epilepsy. These, however, can have many side effects, and are often not well tolerated. Gabapentin and even botulinus toxin have been tried, but found to have little or no benefit.
With your particular problem of bradycardia (slow pulse) plus essential tremor, I can only suggest that you consult a neurologist, if you have not already done so. I regret that I cannot help you more than this, but wish you good luck in you pursuit of a cure.
