In brief: Some Help with Meds

The motor and vocal tics associated with tourette's are usually controlled to some extent by medications.
Thie treatment usually does not completely control tics but usually results in some improvement. It is also helpful to educate others surrounding the person about the nature of tourette's so that the person will feel more comfortable when tics occur. This may help reduce the severity of tics.

In brief: Absolutley

First a thorough diagnostic work-up needs to be done, then associated conditions should be treated.
The tourette's can be well managed in many cases. Also, panda's needs to be ruled out. See http://www.Pedrheumonlinejournal.Org/april/reviewarti.Htm.
