My son has tourette's and i can't find any meds that work!

So my son is 9 yrs old and was diagonsed with ts at age 5. We are so used to his tics we don't give it any thought. he is great about educating people when they stare. However his tics have been very bad lately and we are trying meds again(his choice always) and have found nothing that works for over a year now we have been trying! He also has severe ADHD. so many meds that work for tics make adhd unbareable! Does any one have same prob? Or maybe know of a new med that may work. Or maybe have ideas of how to help him relax? Besides massage and warm bath?

  • Here is a site I found and it lists medications. Maybe you can look at it and see what he hasn't tried yet and mention it to your doctor?
