Abstract

Tourette's disorder is a childhood-onset neuropsychiatric disorder characterized by multiple motor and vocal tics. Many children with Tourette's disorder improve throughout adolescence. However, some adults with Tourette's disorder still experience severe symptoms and significant disability. This article examines the evidence base for current treatments for Tourette's disorder. Emerging treatments such as deep brain stimulation, habit reversal therapy, and repetitive trans-cranial magnetic stimulation are also discussed.
