  1. Hello "ACN Latitudes" members, my name is Ryan and I've had Tourette's since around 8 or 9 years old. I turn 25 years old on April 7th and have been on so so SO many medications over the years that I can't count them on both hands and both feet. I've been on Fluphenazine (I don't know the non-generic name) for over 9 years. It is an antipsychotic, and I personally feel that it has affected my memory. I constantly forget to do something my parents had just asked me to do not even 5 minutes before. Up until the summer before freshman year of high school, the tics had been fairly basic. However, I developed coprolalia while in the middle of Disney World in Florida on a July 4th weekend. Of all the words known to mankind, I developed saying the "n" word. The coprolalia has progressed over the years, except I still say the "n" word constantly. The tics were actually pretty tolerable, however, once I graduated in 2012 and moved on to college my Tourette's and the tics EXPLODED. My OCD, ADHD, and tics got severely worse. I think it has to do with me not having a consistent schedule anymore and am eating out a lot more. I'm honestly just so lost as to where to start on my journey to figuring out natural/alternative ways to heal my Tourette's. I'm just tired of being tired all the time due to my meds. I HATE HATE HATE medications. I have tried CBD oil, I was considering DBS (Deep Brain e Stimulation), and am just....at a loss.....I don't go out anywhere...I live in my room on the computer or sleeping.. I promised to NEVER let the Tourette's win..but I'm at a point where I don't care anymore.
