Thread: what medication for tics?

  1. #1

    Default what medication for tics?

    I've started a treatment for ADDH but the tics (neck-faciel etc) are really bad and worse when I'm tired or anxious.

    What medication is used in such cases



    Thanks

    Default Re: what medication for tics?

    I take Clonidine to help manage my tics, and it works great for me. It's also used to treat ADHD, which might be helpful for you.

    Side-effects include drowsiness (in extreme cases dizziness and/or fainting), dry mouth, and constipation.

    It's a very small tablet, so it's really easy to take. Meh, it does the job for me.
