Possibilities for prevention

At present, there is no known preventive strategy individually targeted at and given for either OCD or tic disorders.

Even when response to successive treatment efforts is less than optimal, the improvement in function and quality of life may be considerable. In families with one or several cases of OCD or tic disorder, clinicians should be attentive to the onset of similar symptoms in children and adolescents, and treat cases of newly occurring disorder early and vigorously.
