Hi! It is not the tourettes syndrome that can cause problems with the memory but the drugs used to ease severe symptoms. Drugs such as haloperidol, pimozide, sulpiride, and tiapride decrease the amount of dopamine in the body. Unfortunately, the incidence of side effects, even at low dosages, is quite high. The short-term side effects can include sedation, dysphoria, weight gain, movement abnormalities, depression, and poor school performance. Long-term side effects can include phobias, memory difficulties, and personality changes.
