Tremorine is a drug which is used in scientific research to produce tremor in animals. This is used for the development of drugs for the treatment of Parkinson's disease, as tremor is a major symptom which is treated by anti-Parkinson's drugs.[1][2][3][4][5] Beta blockers are also effective in counteracting the effects of tremorine.[6]
