Hi there. Medical therapy for parkinson’s symptoms including quivering lips and tongue include carbidopa/levodopa  and bensaride/ levodopa combination, dopamine agonists for motor symptoms to delay motor complications. These include bromocriptine, pergolide, cabergoline etc. other drugs are MAO- B inhibitors like selegeline and rasagiline, increase the dopamine levels in the basal ganglia by blocking its metabolism.  These also improve motor symptoms and delay the need of taking levodopa as monotherapy. Other drugs to be used are amantadine, and anti cholinergics.
Parkinson’s disease has no complete cure as yet. These drugs provide some symptomatic relief. discuss these options with your neurologists and let him prescribe the drug/ drugs for you.
Take care.
