I don't know how much this will help you but i've had ADHD ever since I was about 8 years old ( I'm 20 now ) and I used to have similar ticks that I believe were caused by the ADHD medicine. I would blink rapidly and then some days I would slap the bottom of my right foot when I walked. I got off all medication for an entire summer and the ticks wore off a little but were still there. After starting school again midway through I stopped taking the medicine again and after some months the ticks went away. Although my grades were terrible and I was getting in more trouble than usual the ticks were gone. I started taking adderall again when I was a junior in high school and the symptoms were all different and no ticks. I'm no doctor but for it seemed as if I didn't have ticks again because of my age. And maybe it will be the same for your son. Hope this helps.View Thread
