      What are possible medication or treatment side effects?

      It really depends on which medication/treatment you’re talking about, as there are quite a few. You would need to research each one online to learn about their individual side effects, as they all differ somewhat.

      Apathy, lethargy, fatigue, all subsets of depression, ranging from mild to severe.

      I have had, and continue to have all of these.

      L-dopa is also said to cause hallucinations, loss of impulse control as in compulsive gambling, or shopping sprees, and hypersexuality, whatever that is supposed to mean. So far, none of these have occurred in me. I never had good impulse control, so I can’t really say if L-dopa caused me to blow close to 20 grand on trips and gifts last summer, just after my diagnosis. I am much more careful these days.

      I would really be interested in hearing from anyone who has suffered from “hypersexuality” – as i do not understand why that should occur, and how does it manifest itself.
