Clonazepan ............ Our Miracle Drug
Our dd of 14 has taken several drugs to help with her tics.
She has tried every Anti-Psychotics available for TS and had severe
side-effects.........mostly weight gain and horrible sweats. The side-effects certainly outweighed any benefits. She would tell us the tics were easier to live with than the side-effects of these drugs.
We just want to inform all who are interested of a new medication that has been a miracle for our dd. She's been battling this for several years now and this drug has been a blessing from up above.
It's an Anti-Anxiety drug that has Anti-Tic qualities to it.
The best part for my daughter is that it had had no terrible side-effects, other than a little fatigue the first week. It helps her sleep at night, and helps her face the anxieties of her day in highschool. It has had a hugely positive effect on reducing her tics. She still has some tics, but they are very mild and don't seem to bother her as much.
Just wanted to share this information with all at TSFC.
Being different is special.
