my son had this
it is one of those "blended" OCD/tics (tics become compulsions/obsessions and vice versa)
those types of tics cleared for him when he started taking the 5htp to boost his serotonin

Would it be okay to give him a small amount of 5-HTP in the evening. He is 10, and although his pediatrician is open-minded, did various tests we wanted, I don't know if I should ask him for the 5-HTP or not. I actually have some at home I bought for myself. The only thing he takes is magnesium taurate , 375 a day, and liquid zinc, magnesium, and choline, small amounts. I want to start really small, cause it's scary messing with the brain neurotransmitters, to me. I suppose it could increase tics just like any other supplement you give your child? Thanks.
