he was on guanfancine before about 3 months ago but we stopped, and now back on while he was off meds his tics stopped all together , now they have returned I'm wondering will they stop because this frustrates him very much and he gets angry. I feel helpless.
Since guanfacine is sometimes used to treat ADHD and tics, the tics should improve, not worsen. I would talk to the Dr. and tell him/her the symptoms your son has in an attempt to try a different drug for his needs. I would be very wary of keeping him on something that increases his tics.
