We have a research study available for adolescents with Tourette Syndrome. The purpose of this research study is to find better and safer medications for individuals with Tourette Syndrome.
The investigational medication will be provided at no cost and compensation is provided for time and travel. No health insurance is required to participate in any of our Tourette Syndrome clinical trials.

Participate in a tourette syndrome Research Study
What is Tourette Syndrome?
Tourette syndrome, or Tourette's, is a neurological disorder characterized by repetitive, stereotyped, involuntary movements and vocalizations called tics. The early symptoms of Tourette's are typically noticed first in childhood, with the average onset between the ages of 3 and 9 years. Tourette's occurs in people from all ethnic groups; males are affected about three to four times more often than females.
Although Tourette's 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.
Does my child qualify?
If you answer YES to all of the following questions then your child may qualify for our Tourette Syndrome clinical trials.
1. Is your child between the ages of 13-17 years old?
2. Do they have Tourette Syndrome?
3. Are they willing to take study medication?
4. Are they able to swallow pills whole?
5. Are you or another parent/guardian willing and able to accompany them to all study visits?
Final eligibility is determined during a screening visit at our study site at Orange. During this visit, your child will:
Meet with a professional physician, psychiatrist, or psychologists and be interviewed about their mental and physical health
Review additional information
Undergo a physical examination and have their vitals taken
If your child qualifies and decides to participate:
A study doctor will closely monitor them, their symptoms, and overall health
All study-related medical care and study medication will be provided at no cost
Transportation may be provided at no cost if you and your child need assistance
You will sign an Informed Consent Form (ICF), and your child will sign an Assent Form, which outline which procedures they can expect during each visit
