Bigal Posted February 12, 2012 Report Share Posted February 12, 2012 My son's tics got much worse last week. They have since gotten better, although they are still worse than they had been prior to the outbreak. I asked his ped neurologist about medication. He initially suggested .5 mg guanfacine every night before bedtime. I then asked if there was anything that I could just give my son on an as needed basis. He then suggested Clonazapam. He said we'd start at 0.25 mg and give it to him in the morning. I filled the prescription, but since then tics have lessened. So I have not given him any. I searched this forum to read about Clonazapam. I seems like the "taken as needed approach" is not the norm. Also, it seems that giving it to him in the morning is unusual. I asked the nurse about giving it to him in the morning. She agreed that there is the risk that he will be tired at school. Has anybody tried Clonazapam on an "as needed basis"? Any thoughts on this approach? Thanks Alan Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
