There are very few medications approved for Tourettes. in the medicines Cataples (clonidine), Tenex (Guanfacine), are for mild symptoms. whats found in them are, in parenthesis, calm the nerves to a degree. they are usually made for younger kids to help them consentrate in school or for behavor. For more sever cases, there is a medicine called Risperdal (riperidone). this medicine also calms the nerves, but alot more than the first two medicines. for older people, doctors have discovered Haldol (Haloperidol). All of these medicines are approved for Tourettes. but these pills do come with side-effects. such as fatigue, weight gain, depression, sleep problems, and hypertension.
