What is Coprolalia, Tourette’s Syndro
What is Coprolalia Syndrome Definition?
• Coprolalia Syndrome (Tourette Syndrome), ‘the world’s most common unknown
disease’, is the genetic neurological disease that involves involuntary movements
(tics) and sounds that are repeated many times a day.
• Coprolalia Tourette Syndrome is a disease in which often occur during the day
voice and motor tics that last at least one year.
• Tourette syndrome often begins with simple tics (repetitive, involuntary,
purposeless, recoil muscle movements) in early childhood and progress to
complex movements including vocal tics and abrupt, spastic breathing. Voice tics
can begin as grunting or barking and thrive in a forced, involuntary attacks of
cursing. The number, frequency and complexity of the tics in coprolalia change
over time. From mild, such as unintentional winks and coughs to severe that
inhibit speech and movement. The disease is four times more common in boys
than in girls. A parent has a 50% chance to pass disease on to their children. When
speaking about children, we at FeelGoodTime.net always recommend our dear
readers to take an Avoidant Personality Disorder Test and find more about

• Coprolalia syndrome is an inherited disease that is three times more common in
men than in women. The exact cause is not known, but it is thought that it occurs
because of an abnormality in dopamine and other neurotransmitters in the brain
(substances that nerve cells use to interconnect).
Tourette, Coprolalia Syndrome Symptoms
• Many people have a simple tics, such as repeated eye blinking, which are
usually nervous habits and may eventually disappear. Tics in coprolalia are
more complex than eye blinking. A child with Tourette syndrome may
repeatedly move its head from side to side, eye-blink, open mouth and
stretch its neck. More complex tics include banging and kicking,
complaining, contemptuously blowing and buzzing. People with coprolalia
syndrome can from obscure reasons shout vulgar expressions, often in the
midst of conversation. They can also repeat the words immediately after
they have heard (echolalia). Some may suppress some tics, usually with
difficulty, other people have difficulties in their suppression, especially
during emotional stress.
• People with Tourette syndrome often have difficulty in social situations. In
the past, they were avoided, isolated and even thought that they were
possessed of the devil (as inObsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder).
Many people with the disease develop rapidly, aggressive and self-
destructive behavior, and children often have difficulty with learning. It is
not known whether it is caused by the disease itself or the specific stress
of living with the disease.
Coprolalia Treatment – Tourette
• Early diagnosis can help parents to understand that these behaviors are not willing
or malicious and that they can not be prevented by punishing the child. Parents
need to understand how to help a child.
• Tics can be prevented with antipsychotic drugs, although psychosis is not a
problem. Effective is haloperidol, commonly used antipsychotic drug, but it can
cause side effects such as numbness, weight gain, blurred vision, drowsiness and
slow blunt opinion. Side effects of pimozide, another antipsychotic drug, are
usually milder. Clonidine, which is not an antipsychotic, can help to combat anxiety
and obsessive-forced behavior, side effects are milder than of haloperidol and
pimozide. Clonazepam is a drug against anxiety that in the treatment of Tourette,
Coprolalia syndrome has limited success.
• The disease is not curable, but there are drugs that can control the symptoms that
eventually decrease as you get older.
• Neurochemical term of disease is still not well understood. The main biochemical
theory says that there is an imbalance in the function of neurotransmitters (gear
information in the brain) called dopamine.
• The theory is based on the well-being of the effect of drugs that block dopamine,
and the fact that certain stimulants such as pemoline and methyilphenidate can
increase tics. There is an coprolalia-tourette syndrome association, we
recommend you to check (TSA). Although coprolalia at this point not curable, the
more you know about it, there more you are beginning to understand it
