Tourette Syndrome and Attention Deficit Disorder and ADHD

Tourette Syndrome (also referred to as Tourettes Syndrome and Tourette’s Syndrome) is a disorder that seems to prefer company. The two most common disorders associated with Tourettes is ADD and ADHD. In addition to Attention Deficit Disorder, learning disabilities, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and sleep disorders are all fairly common with people with Tourette Syndrome. Children with Tourette Syndrome are also likely to have a history of anger control. Children with Tourette Syndrome are also more likely to stutter.

Tourette’s Syndrome is a disorder characterized by vocal and motor tics. Tics are sudden, repetitive motor or vocal expressions or movements. A vocal tics symptom might include frequent clearing of the throat, coughing or sniffling, compulsive grunting noises or repeating words heard. A motor tics symptom might include repetitive eye blinking, shrugging, head turning or leg bouncing. Tourettes Syndrome can be mistaken for not being able to sit still or impulsive behavior.

Tourettes occurs in about 1 in 2000 children and the causes are unknown. Tourette Syndrome occurs most often in boys. In order to be diagnosed with Tourettes, the child must have both vocal and motor tics and that Tourette Syndrome symptom present for more than one year.

In general, tics are a mild symptom at the onset, worsen at or about puberty and become milder as the person ages. About one third of children will outgrow the tics by the time they reach adulthood.

When Tourettes Syndrome accompanies ADD or ADHD, the symptom of Attention Deficit often appear first. Although ADHD symptom presentation typically arrives first, some professionals question which disorder is responsible for the other.

Does Tourette Syndrome cause ADHD symptom issues, does the ADHD produce the tic symptom presentation of Tourette. Or, are the two disorders interconnected at all? While professionals do not agree on the answer to these questions, the medical community does acknowledge that ADHD medications can start or worsen tics.

Ritalin makes tics worse in about 40 percent of children who have Tourette Syndrome. Many parents report the onset of tics symptom shortly after starting ADHD medication.

Because ADHD medications can worsen the symptoms of Tourette Syndrome, parents should check family history for Tourettes before administering medication. If Tourette Syndrome or tics are a concern, parents should consider using Attend for the treatment of Attention Deficit Disorder. Attend does not worsen tics are cause tics.

There is no cure for Tourettes but symptoms are usually managed with counseling and school accommodations. The medications most often used in the treatment f Tourettes are Clonidine, Guanfacine, Haloperidol and Pimozide, though most children with Tourettes do not need medication to control their tics.
