My son Ben is doing very well. I learned at Ben's check up in February that the FDA does approve this for OCD. Isn't it ironic that they can approve it for something that is a side disorder, and at times just as severe as the TS, but not TS? My youngest son who is seventeen has such bad tics now that he is holding his breath, or talking non stop until he almost passes out. He is also up all night because his legs won't stop ticking. The Dr.s at NYU and I will discuss the possibility of DBS for him too. I know it sounds like I'm using it for a quick cure but believe me when you sit and watch your son, my youngest, punch his nose over and over without stopping until the corners split and he has blood everywhere and scabs that never heal because he can't stop the tic, I'd do anything to help them find the relief Ben has found.
Much love and thanks,
