The Tourette Syndrome Diagnosis Information Page is intended to provide information on Tourette Syndrome and to help those with Tourette Syndrome find assistance paying for their medications.

According to the National Institutes of Health, Tourette syndrome is a neurological disorder characterized by repetitive, stereotyped, involuntary movements and vocalizations called tics. Symptoms are typically noticed first in childhood, with the average onset between the ages of 3 and 9 years. Although TS can be a chronic condition with symptoms lasting a lifetime, most people with the condition experience their worst tic symptoms in their early teens, with improvement occurring in the late teens and continuing into adulthood. Because tic symptoms often do not cause impairment, the majority of people with TS require no medication for tic suppression. However, effective medications are available for those whose symptoms interfere with functioning.
