I am 70 yr old female and have had tourettes since I was 7. Mine is mostly violent head jerks & snapping my teeth loudly. I am on clonazapam ..01 3/day & cloinidine .01 2/day. I have seen same neurologist or about 7 years & we try to work out things together. Meds usually work for 2-4 wks & then don't work very well. We have tried Orap, Fluxotine. Fluxotine worked great for 3 wks & then stop working. Any help???

Hi!
I am sorry that drugs are not very effectively working for you. There is nothing much you can do, but try different medications. At times trying a combination of medications (anti-depressants, antihypertensives, neuroleptics, etc) helps. Also, cognitive behavior theprapy helps deal with symptoms better and reduce its impact.  Hope this helps. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
