What to expect for drug induced Parkinsons symptoms?
Impulse control disorders are related Parkinson treatment medications such as Piribedil, and these include unpleasant and annoying character changes:
• pathological gambling
• punding, e.g. assembling and disassembling, collecting, or sorting household objects
• pathological use of the Internet
• restless leg syndrome
Repetitive compulsive behaviors are reported so often as Parkinson's disease symptoms, that they are officially considered to be a result of the Parkinsons meds:
“Pramipexole has been mainly related to these compulsions, although these disorders may occur when any dopaminergic agonist-based therapy is administered.”
(Impulse Control Disorder and Piribedil: Clin Neuropharmacol. 2009 Dec 3.)
Involuntary shaking of later Parkinsons stages is caused by the Parkinsons meds themselves, but this can now be helped!
Even for late Parkinsons stages, medical treatment is best accompanied by a Parkinsons diet high in fruits and vegetables (antioxidants) and neuro-protective supplements for the brain and nerves, so as to improve QUALITY OF LIFE.

MOOD Disorders & DEPRESSION:
Parkinson treatment medications may increase depression even though it may not be severe. Some people become more pessimistic or irritable.
Some people do become fearful and insecure.This stands to reason, because they need reassurance about coping with new situations. So they will likely not want to travel, go to parties, or socialize with friends.
Constipation and urinary problems are typical because these are regulated by the autonomic nervous system which is affected, as Parkinsons Disease symptoms.
But constipation can also be caused by inactivity, eating a poor diet, or drinking too little fluid.
SWALLOWING & CHEWING problems:
The muscles used in swallowing may work less efficiently in later stages of the disease, so best to add neuro-protective supplements in a drink!
Sleep problems are among Parkinsons symptoms. People have trouble staying asleep at night, have a restless sleep or even restless legs, nightmares and emotional dreams. Some have drowsiness during the day.
