Hallucinations in Parkinson’s Linked to Disease Duration, Medications and Poor Sleep in Study

Visual hallucinations are frequent among Parkinson’s disease patients, confirms a study published in the Journal of Neurological Sciences. In addition, it shows that visual hallucinations are associated with the duration of the disease, the use of dopamine agonist drugs, the quality of sleep, and the patients’ ability to think. According to the authors, these results “should trigger further inquiry by neurologists”.
