Brief report: effects of propranolol in Tourette syndrome.

Alternate medications for the treatment of Tourette syndrome are required because haloperidol in some patients either may be ineffective or may cause disturbing side effects. Propranolol, a beta-adrenergic blocking agent, has been reported as effective, in uncontrolled trials, in ameliorating symptoms of tic disorder, tardive dyskinesia, and drug-induced extrapyramidal syndrome. Propranolol, in doses up to 120 mg per day, was administered to five patients with Tourette syndrome in a placebo-controlled study and was found ineffective in ameliorating symptoms of Tourette syndrome. Results underscored the importance of placebo-controlled investigation when evaluating the effects of drugs in Tourette syndrome.[1]
