Just saying hello, I'm fairly new to the whole Facebook thing! My son was diagnosed with Tourette's about a month ago. He's 6 years old, and has had a variety of tics that have come and gone with increasing frequency over the past couple of years. Right now we're trying to find a medicine that will lessen the tics. Clonidine isn't working, if anything, he seems to be worse. Could just be that the tic was getting worse as we put him on the med. So he starts on Elavil next week after he's weaned off the other. Anyone with experience with Elavil?
