My husband was diagnosed with a tic disorder almost 8 years ago. He has seen several neurologist and has been treated with several therapies and drugs, none that helped that much. All the neurologist refuse to believe he didn't have some tic disorder as a child. All family members and myself all agree, as does my husband, that he did not have tics as a child. Even if they were very slight. Incidentally my husband remembers the first one he ever had thinking it was a fluke, over tired, etc. Does anyone have info on adult onset tic disorders? I'm feeling helpless and my husband depressed that after this long, still no one believes him. He is contemplating risperdal treatment, but when he tried klonapin he was a zombie. We don't want to repeat that. Thanks.
