Tourette's Syndrome and ADHD

15-year old son with Tics


My 15-year old has been struggling with Tics associated with his ADHD meds for about 4 years.  We have tried different ADHD meds and what usually happens is that the tics get better, but then return.  He is on clonodine…but that doesn’t seem to help much either.  he’s also been on Kapvay…very expensive, helped at first and then the tics seem to resume.

wondering if others have had any success controlling the tics with other meds?  or other methods?

Would love the input.
