Report Two questions about TS in Tourette Syndrome and Tics Posted October 17, 2008 Brink I was just wondering what dose of Clonodine your child was on? You said it made him like a zombie, was the dose too high, could you have lowered the dose? That's what we did with our sons and it worked quite well afterwards. Good point. For the record I am a 160-170lbs male and I take 0.05mg, which is 1/2 of the smallest pill available. For a little kid I suspect half of that, or less (if you want to break the pill into 1/8s... ) may work. I did have drowsiness as a side effect but it has subsided for the most part. I still get dizzy when I stand up too fast. edit - not trying to tell you what to do, just saying. Also sorry you had a bad experience with your neuro. Mine is about the coolest doctor I've ever been to. If you're in the Chicago burbs I can give you a recommendation.
