This could be caused by some effects of the drug use OR it could be a simple neurologic condition such as essential (familial) tremor.

I would strongly suggest making an appointment with your doctor. Typically this would be managed by a neurologist. It is essential that you be honest with the doctor about your drug history, since the doctor can not give the best treatment or diagnosis without knowing your complete history.
