Coprolalia is a sudden outburst of inappropriate words, especially swear words. This can cause certain social situations to be difficult for the patient and others around them. Coprolalia affects around 10 to 15 percent of all Tourette symptom patients. To treat this symptom, patients should attend sessions to assess different treatment options.
