Prevention of Tourette’s syndrome

th (1)

There are no preventative measures for Tourette’s syndrome since it is primarily inherited. While there is no treatment for Tourette syndrome, most people’s symptoms intensify in their late teens and early twenties. As a consequence, certain people will be able to live without the symptoms or no longer need tic medicine.

Despite the fact that Tourette syndrome is a permanent and persistent disease, it is not a degenerative disorder like many other neurological conditions. Individuals with Tourette syndrome have a normal life expectancy and their intelligence and cognitive abilities are unaffected. While tic signs appear to fade with age, comorbid neurobehavioral disorders such as ADHD, OCD, depression, generalised anxiety, panic attacks, and mood swings can linger or even worsen in adulthood, causing disability.
