tourette syndrome bi-polar and adhd

Recommended Posts

Guest april

Hello, I am a mother of two boys. One has tourette syndrome,bi-polar disorder and adhd.I have been having alot of behavior problems,learning difficulties,and alot of defiance with him. He is 8 years old. The doctor put him on a medicine called elavil which is an anti depressant. It seems to be helping him but I think the doctor is treating the bi-polar disorder rather than the other problems.You see nobody specializes in tourette syndrome where I live, and i feel utterly alone because there is no support groups to help me either i need some good advice from someone who has been there.If anyone has any help for me please email me at sadlers@eastex.net

any help you can give me will be well appreciated..thank you,april

I have the same challenge here in Florida and I have found that If you can't find what you need create it.

Call the National T.S.A. to ask about any local support 1 888 4 TOURET
