I have BET

I wrote earlier, but my questions was not posted, so I will try again.  I am 71 years old and up to about 6 or 8 months ago I have never taken any medication, however, my tremors on my head and hands were a bit out of control.  My doctor put me in 20 mgs of Inderol, however I got 2 bad dizzy spells and so he took me off Inderol and put me on Primidone, 100 mg.  50 mgs. two times per day.  I have only had one dizzy spell from these.  I have been on these for about 5 weeks and on occasion I have forgotten my afternoon dose and I feel a lot better with 50 than 100.  Why should there be such an increase in the mgs. between Inderol and Primidone?  I have heard a lot about Topamax for treating these tremors, what do you think of these?  

Since I have been taking Primidone I have hand nose bleeds from the left nasal passage only, could this be caused from the Primidone?

Any information you can supply would be appreciated.  Thank you so much, Anna
