Case report

Treatment of a man suffering from both Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Tourette's syndrome

T. Niers, M. Vegt, J.H.M. Tulen, G. Janzen, M.W. Hengeveld

summary Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Tourette's syndrome frequently occur together in one and the same person. The case of a man with both disorders serves as a basis for a discussion of the pharmacotherapeutic options available for treating adults suffering form these two disorders si-multaneously. The authors give advice regarding the use of anti psychotics, stimulants, clonidine (an α-2-adrenoceptor agonist) and combinations of these.
