I am 26 and have just recently been diagnosed even though I have had it since I was about 7. I have tried and failed to deal with the symptoms and the consultant who diagnosed me put me on the anti-depressant Fluoxetine as it apparently can help with the symptoms. No noticeable results after a week but I was told it could take longer to kick in. Has anyone else been prescribe this drug for Tourette's and have they had any benefit?
