    Just wondering if Brad would want to share what medications he has tried and whch seemed to work the best for him. I know everyone is different but it helps to get some insight. My son has tried many different ones and the present combination of Luvox and Abilify has helped to take away some of the compulsions but it also seems to steal his thunder and make him unmotivated. Wondering what balance of medication worked for Brad while he is able to perform at his job. We tried adding an ADHD medication (Vyvanse) and it helped him to focus and feel good but the tics often got worse. Have you ever been tested for food intolerence or gluten intolerance? We did get a complete neurotransmitter blood test and many of his were too high or too low. Any advice would be so helpful.

    My husband John Holland has Tourette’s and he is taking Abilify and Lexapro and it seems to help him.
