My son Nick is 13 yrs. old and takes abilify right now. He took risperdol for about five years before the abilify. I believe the risperdol made him gain weight but the abilify has made him lose his appetite. So he is on the other end of Jordan. He is too thin. He loves sports and continues to play. Baseball is his favorite and he\'s an awesome pitcher because of his tourette\'s. He puts all of that motor ticing energy into each pitch. We were able to lower his doses when he was active, which helped his mood and temperment. When he is not doing a sport, he motor tics a lot more and is very touchy. Is there some kind of sport Jordan can get into again. I really notice a difference. It may be hard at first but I really think It would help his self esteem.. I think this is a really hard age with tourette\'s. We just have to help them through it the best we can and help them understand they are loved. It will get better I hear.
