Was/have been on this medication for over four years. I started weening off the medication this summer and have been off for over two months, and my tics haven't come back. I'm hoping I've outgrown the Tourette's, which my doc said could happen. Side effects SUCKED!

I have been on Orap for 25 years. It's very beneficial to me. Without it I make uncontrollable noises and face movements. I most likely will be on it for the rest of my life. The side effects I've adapted to are a severe case of tremors in which I take other medications to treat.

Have been on Orap for 15 years and it has been a life saver. I would not function in my daily life without it. I only take enough to suppress tics during the day so I don't overmedicate.

Comment:
Orap immediately took care of my facial and hand ticks but gave me SEVERE anxiety. I was on this drug for two years before I realized why I was so anxious. I went thru 8 jobs in two years because of it. Wish I would have pin-pointed the cause earlier. Would have saved me A LOT of grief. Stopped taking it and am back to my normal laid-back self!
