Cognitive-Behavioral: Therapy iworks if frequent & long-term. Practice techniques till they're automatic; I.e.,, wear a rubber bracelet & "snap out" obsessions. Tourette Syndrome has multiple motor tics & at least 1 vocal tic for at least a year, often + ADHD & OCD, Stimulants for ADHD ^ anxiety. The non-stimulants Intuniv & Kapvay can be used with SSRI's. A neurologist or psychiatrist can re-evaluate & treat.
