A case of tourette’s disorder with obsessive compulsive symptoms which was treated sucessfully with apiprazole

Devrim Öztürk Can, Esen Uz Gül.

Tourette’s disorder (TD) is a disease mostly characterized with repeated motor and vocal tics. While highly potent drugs such as trifluoperazin, pimozide, haloperidol etc. have been used for many years, adrenergic agonists such as clonidine and guanfacine have been preferred in the treatment of severe cases. Hence their high potency was proved in controlled trials and case reports and favourable side effect profiles of these agents, atypical antipsyhchotics such as risperidon, ziprasidon and olanzapin are used commonly. We aimed to present a case of Tourette disorder with refractory obsessive symptoms and tics who was treated succesfully with aripiprazol which differs from other typical and atypical antipsychotics due to its action of mechanism.

Key words: aripiprazole, Tourette’s disorder, treatment
