Report Husband with Tourettes in Tourette Syndrome and Tics Posted January 28, 2010 I know marajuana worked amazingly well for him when he was in college - almost completely eliminated tics. Is there a medicine that mimics what marajuana does? Marinol is prescribed legally for tics, tho I am not sure if it is available in all states Yeah, but good luck finding a doctor who will actually prescribe it. Mine told me "yes it works, but no, I won't give it to you." Also, I've heard it's ridiculously expensive... like hundreds of dollars per month. Buying weed on the street is cheaper, lol. Every instance I've heard of Marinol being prescribed is for cancer patients (to help with nausea from chemo, but only after every other anti-nausea agent has been tried) or for patients with terminal wasting conditions, like AIDS.
