Our expert says:
I'm amazed that whoever made the diagnosis didn't advise poperly on treatment. I'm not aware of the effects of Cipramil on Tourettes, though if there is an element of depression and anxiety making the Tourettes worse, it could help. You need to see a neurologist who can confirm the diagnosis ( that's the easy part !) and advice on treatment --- some of the antipsychotic drugs like haloperidol seem to help some folks with Tourettes considerably, as can drugs such as Clonidine and Pimozide ; and your neurologist should know of the latest research.
