I wanted to know if any of you kind people have any answers for me. 

if you have heard of or had :  delayed onset of stereotypical tics such as lips smacking after a stroke?

What is the treatment options you have had? Any idea if it resolves? Is it self limiting?

I have tried to look all over with very limited information.

Thanks for any help.

Best wishes,

      risperidone and clonazepam are very effective i believe as first line treatment, if you haven't already tried you may want to discuss with your doctor. Also botox injection is very promising.
