In brief: Tics are benign

Tics can be benign habitual mannerisms; and there are hereditary tics like in gilles e la tourette syndrome.
In some people tics subside spontaneously for long time or permanently. It is necessary to reassure the person that this is benign condition. In severe cases haloperidol, Pimozide and even deep brain srimulation can help.
