My son is 8 and has severe vocal tics that involve curse words. It can be very upsetting to all of us and we have to explain why our child "cusses". sometimes repetitive and other times it just comes as he thinks out loud...and with his adhd .... He is almost always talking! He gets extremely upset if we have to remove him from activities because... He is a child ... And naturally wants to be part of things. We just started intuniv in place of focalin for the adhd. He is taking risperidal and Zoloft as well. Not sure if the risperidal works though. This is so very frustrating! There is not much research available so I am hoping to hear from someone! I need advice.
