Self-Assessment Questions


Answer 2
  1. Reassurance and clinical monitoring. When tic disorder symptoms are mild and not interfering with psychosocial functioning, it is most appropriate to educate the family about tic disorders and reassure them that tic disorders can be managed with a combination of behavioral interventions and/or medications if symptoms become more severe.2 Both haloperidol and risperidone are used to treat tic disorders, whereas bupropion is not effective for these conditions.2
