    Question about vocal tics

    My son got vocal tics when he tried adderal 5 years ago. After many med changes and possible wrong diag., we are now back to considering adhd meds. He got a very strong vocal tic from only 2 days on adderal that took 2 weeks to stop. Could all different types of stimlulants also bring on the tics? We tried Straterra and that brought on anger and aggresivness. We have had no other problems with tics.

    Re: Question about vocal tics

    Just4me1, the simple answer to your question is "yes". All of the stimulants can cause tics. They almost always go away - eventually - but there is the rare case that doesn't go away.

    I feel for you. It's a tough position to be in. A kid with ADHD has alot to deal with (as do his parents). And then the alternative is tics. Not much of an alternative, is it?

    Good luck to you and your son!
