My 17 year old daughter has ADHD and last school year was on Concerta. She developed a facial tic while on this medication. When she stopped taking it the tic got better but didn't go away completely. Shouldn't the tic have gone away when she stopped her stimulant medication? Tourette Syndrome runs in our family.
