Tourette Syndrome Prognosis

Although there is no Tourette syndrome cure, the condition in many individuals improves in the late teens and early 20s. As a result, some people may actually become symptom-free or no longer need medication for tic suppression.
 
Tourette syndrome is generally lifelong and chronic; however, it is not a degenerative condition. Individuals with Tourette syndrome have a normal life expectancy, and the disorder does not impair intelligence.
 
While tic symptoms tend to decrease with age, it is possible that behavioral disorders, such as depression, panic attacks, mood swings, and antisocial behaviors, can persist and cause impairment in adult life.
