Re: 20 year old with tourettes
It's good that u mentioned that i myself am 20 years old like your son. I've just started ritalin and the toretts is anoying but i deal with. My finger tick every second on it but its not to much worse than normal. The worst part for me is my OCD normaly my ocd is bad enough, and i will get obsessed with something and wont stop till im done or bored which rarely happens. When im on ritalin i get very moody at doses lower than 25-30mg every 3-4 hrs. I'm only perscibed 60mg a day and i dont know how my doc will react if i tell him that i might need 75-90mg a day. Asking for more is my last resort. Aswell i find on ritalin im not picky with what i get obsessed with. Even clean the whole house is fine, but it interferes with my day and ill be doing unimportant things for like 4-5 hours. Ive treid 10-20mg per dose but i just end up fighting with everyone and not doing anything all day. <removed>
