Children, Tourette Syndrome and Prozac

Hi everyone! Here is a question from a mother named Rachel. She would greatly appreciate it if you could help her out:

I had a question about a medication: Does any parent have experience with a child with Tourette Syndrome being put on Prozac? If so, did it help? My son will have meltdowns. He gets overwhelmed in busy places and gets angry and sad.


  1. I’d be curious to know, as well. I know antipsychotics such as Risperdal and Abilify are prescribed for aggression and anger, as well as to moderate tics, but am not sure about antidepressants.
