Re: Tourette Syndrome and ADHD

Hombre,

My heart goes out to you. I wish so much I had all the solutions. I don't.

TS and ADHD are frequent traveling companions. It seems that the cure (stimulants) for the one is the exascerbator of the other.

You need a highly qualified shrink that can exactly balance the medications. You can ask about Strattera or Intuniv along with a low dose of an amphetamine based med. I suspect straight d-amphetamine, Dexedrine, would be best for you. Just my layman's perspective.

The one thing I am absolutely sure of is YOU CAN BE "all you dreamed of." It is "simply" a matter of finding the right doctor.

Cases like your depress me (in a most positive way). Just doesn't have to be.

Best regards,
Bob
