My son was started on Vyvanse and develped horrible tics, his doctor took him off the Vyvanse and started him on Clonidine, the tics have gotten much better but he is struggling in school, grades slipping, can't focus, etc...I'm scared to increase the Clonidine again b/c last time the doctor increased it he fainted. Very scary! Any tips on meds that worked for your children that develped tics? I want to help him do well in school but w/o causing tics, he is in middle school and we all know how cruel middle school children can be. Any advice is greatly appreciated :)
