Description

To evaluate the effect and acceptability of an Internet-based comprehensive behavioral intervention for tics (ICBIT) in a sample of children and adolescents with Tic disorders, children and adolescents (aged 8-17 years) with Tourette Syndrome (TS) or Chronic Tic Disorder (CTD) and their parents will be randomly assigned to receive either an Internet-based ICBIT or wait-list (WL) condition in a cross over design.

Participants will be randomized to ICBIT, or to wait list, and half will cross over from wait list to ICBT. Two blind independent clinical evaluators will rate tic severity and comorbidity. The primary outcome measure is the Yale Global Tic Severity Scale (YGTSS). Assessments will be performed at baseline, post-ICBT or post wait list, 3-months and 6-months (post-treatment for those originally assigned to ICBT) and post-ICBT, 3-months and 6-months (post-treatment for those originally assigned to wait list condition). All assessments were conducted by 2 PhD level independent child psychologists.

The World Health Organization's classification categories of health and health-related domains. The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) consists of two lists: a list of body functions and structure, and a list of domains of activity and participation. The ICF also includes a list of environmental factors.

A list, criteria, or screening tool designed to improve PATIENT SAFETY by determining an individual's exposure to potentially inappropriate drugs. They are designed to prevent MEDICATION ERRORS by INAPPROPRIATE PRESCRIBING. Analysis for a list includes factors such as DOSE-RESPONSE RELATIONSHIP, DRUG; DRUG-RELATED SIDE EFFECTS AND ADVERSE REACTIONS; AGE FACTORS; GENDER; and existing medical conditions.

A diphenylbutylpiperidine that is effective as an antipsychotic agent and as an alternative to HALOPERIDOL for the suppression of vocal and motor tics in patients with Tourette syndrome. Although the precise mechanism of action is unknown, blockade of postsynaptic dopamine receptors has been postulated. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p403)

Drugs that bind to but do not activate DOPAMINE RECEPTORS, thereby blocking the actions of dopamine or exogenous agonists. Many drugs used in the treatment of psychotic disorders (ANTIPSYCHOTIC AGENTS) are dopamine antagonists, although their therapeutic effects may be due to long-term adjustments of the brain rather than to the acute effects of blocking dopamine receptors. Dopamine antagonists have been used for several other clinical purposes including as ANTIEMETICS, in the treatment of Tourette syndrome, and for hiccup. Dopamine receptor blockade is associated with NEUROLEPTIC MALIGNANT SYNDROME.
