Hi Steve, I'm glad you found us! Obviously, I am not around twenty, but rather have kids your age 8) .
I am wondering the same thing as Steve: Why do you feel you need medication now, after managing without them for so long? With a lot of them the side effects are bad, while the benefits (as in tic reduction)are so small, that it isn't worth taking them.
I have a lot of tics, but since none usually interfere with everyday life, I don't take any meds. Plus, of course, I managed without them for 51 years, why start taking meds now?
