My son is 17 and has been on 7 different meds for his tourette\'s since he was 10. Over the last few years nothing has been helping him for it. His tics, both verbal and physical are as strong as ever. He stays home a lot, and basically hates himself because of this. Lately, he\'s been losing hope. I\'ve just left a msg with the dr asking if we can just take him off all meds for the tourettes and see what happens. I know he\'ll still have the tics, but if they don\'t get any worse, why have him on the meds, which give him side effects, which only adds to his depression?
