What’s the Best Treatment for ADHD and Tourette’s?
Dr. Barbara Coffey on stimulant medication and tics
Tourette’s syndrome is often diagnosed alongside attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. Psychiatrist Barbara Coffey talks about how treating the ADHD effectively is really important, as Tourette’s symptoms tend to subside but ADHD continues. And research shows that certain stimulant medications for ADHD don’t increase tics significantly.
Dr. Coffey is Chief of the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.
