My 8 year old daughter Alexis has TS. She is on a medication called Tenex, half a tablet at night and a quarter in the morning. This has helped some of her tics completely stop, but some have continued and have even gotten a little more severe. She has one tic in particular that worries me the most- she digs in her belly button continuously, to the point sometimes that it breaks the skin, but she CONTINUES to do it anyway. She also makes a hacking noise. Should the medicine completely stop these? Should I ask that her dose be increased?
