Horrified! Totally horrified that this company is making this decision. Procyclidine has a "much" better side effect profile than Trihexylphenidyl and other commonly used anticholinergics. Word just needs to get out! Please reconsider your decision, I have many patients doing well on it!!!

This is only drug in 15 years that has stopped my hand tremors. Sinemet and Azilect together don't stop the shaking. Any chance there is another drug that works as well?
