My son has tics/Tourettes. I've read so many articles that state only meds work for kids with ADD. Is there a natural remedy that anyone has tried?

so, you read what you want and ignore the helpful parts that state that there MAY BE MEDICATIONS...Good grief.

I linked you to at least one healthcare site, NIH.GOV, that showed this.

There is no UNIVERSAL med, meaning there is no one that works for ALL!!!

He's going tomorrow to Dr. to ask if he "officially" has it. However, not sure there is "medicine" to treat tourettes

" However, effective medications are available for those whose symptoms interfere with functioning. Neuroleptics (drugs that may be used to treat psychotic and non-psychotic disorders) are the most consistently useful medications for tic suppression; a number are available but some are more effective than others (for example, haloperidol and pimozide)."

I found this here: http://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/toure...

Yes, depending on the severity of the condition, once it is diagnosed, medication may be available.

There is no UNIVERSAL medication.

Correct. He's going back to Dr. Wed. However, what I'm saying is that everything I've read whether he's diagnosed or not there's no medicine to help with Tourettes.

You need a diagnosis before you can start treating anything. Tourette's is not a condition that is generally treated holistically.

Never diagnosed with ADD. Although lately he's saying he has it...has had tics for years. Goes in spurts of how bad they are. Really bad now and don't want to give him meds if possible. I've read there's nothing you can do for this sadly.

Tourette's is different than ADD. Has your son been diagnosed?
