Thank you for your question. With regard to ADD and tics - sometimes these conditions do occur together naturally. Other times, the tic can be a result of medication, or possibly aggravated by medication. Sometimes tics are reversible - but sometimes, not. In terms of whether you can get rid of your tic - I would suggest you discuss that with your doctor. It depends upon the cause of your tic - whether or not it is treatable. In any case, I would proceed very cautiously with whatever medication you use.
Hope this helps. Good luck - Dr. EV.
