Has anyone tried using Botox for their child’s tics? My son has some major facial tics going on, and I read one Canadian study — that’s on this blog by the way — and wondered if anyone had successfully used it.
The study showed lots of success and I am willing to give it a try if I can buy my son some relief from the painful ones of his eyebrows going up and down on the one side, and would love if it they could do something for the neck/jaw movement as well as it causes him a LOT of pain because of the muscles. I even saw where they injected into the vocal chords for the constant noises and it was 95 percent effective.
I can’t understand why this isn’t readily available to our kids. Mine is 14, by the way, and is extremely distressed by his tics — no medication has worked at all for him. Thanks for any info!
