Description of Tic Disorders and Tourette Syndrome
Gilles de la Tourette Syndrome (GTS), more commonly referred to as Tourette syndrome (TS), is considered a developmental (most likely inherited) neurological and psychiatric disorder characterized by the presence of chronic motor and phonic tics. Tics (uncontrollable, repetitive, and non-rhythmic movements of select muscle groups including those needed to speak) provoke involuntary sounds, phrases, taboo words, or oddly appearing jerking motions such as slapping or grimacing. Tics range from being a minor inconvenience to completely debilitating.
Tics and Tourettes
Mental and Behavioural Disorders
ICD-10 Code: F95
Tic Disorders and Tourette Syndrome Symptoms:
Motor tics (e.g. eye twitching), verbal tics (e.g. sudden outbursts)
Also known as:
TS, Transient tic disorder, Tourette's disorder
THC Interaction with Pharmaceutical Drugs
- THC can enhance the effects of drugs that cause sedation and depress the central nervous system, such as benzodiazepines, barbiturates, and alcohol, for example.
- THC is metabolized by and an inhibitor of a number of enzymatic liver pathways referred to as cytochrome P450. There are more than 50 enzymes belonging to this enzyme family, a number of which are responsible for the breakdown of common drugs such as antidepressants (e.g. amitriptyline, doxepine, fluvoxamine), antipsychotics (haloperidol, clozapine, stelazine), beta-blockers (e.g. propranolol), bronchodilators (e.g. theophylline), or bloodthinners (e.g. warfarin). Thus patients taking these classes of medication may find that THC increases the concentration and effects of these drugs as well as the duration of their effects.
- Clinical observation suggests no likely interactions with other pharmaceuticals at a total daily dose of up to 20mg THC.
CBD Interaction with Pharmaceutical Drugs
- CBD may alter action on metabolic enzymes (certain drug-transport mechanisms), and as such may alter interactions with other drugs, some of which may produce therapeutic or adverse effects. For instance, CBD interacts with the enzyme cytochrome P450 3A4 and cytochrome P450 2C19, increasing the bioavailability of anti-epileptic drugs such as clobazam (a benzodiazepine). This makes it possible to achieve the same results at significantly lower dosages, reducing treatment costs and risks of adverse effects.
- Groups of drugs affected include: anti-epileptic drugs, psychiatric drugs, and drugs affecting metabolic enzymes, for example.
- Clinical observations suggest no likely interactions with other pharmaceuticals at a total daily dose of up to 100mg CBD
THC Dosage Considerations
- THC micro dose: 0.1 mg to 0.4 mg
- THC low dose: 0.5 mg to 5 mg
- THC medium dose: 6 mg to 20 mg
- THC high dose: 21 mg to 50+ mg
CBD Dosage Considerations
- CBD low dose: 0.4 mg to 19 mg
- CBD medium dose: 20 mg to 99 mg
- CBD high dose: 100 mg to 800+ mg (upper limits tested ~1,500mg)
