This forum is for discussion of your experiences of different drugs and treatments, including surgery, side effects and therapies.

It’s important to remember that the views offered here are the opinions and experiences of other members. This should not replace professional medical advice. Always consult with a healthcare professional such as a consultant, GP or local Parkinson’s nurse before stopping or changing your medication or trying new treatments.

Important: Impulsive and compulsive behaviour

Some people taking certain classes of drugs (dopamine agonists and other drugs) experience impulsive and compulsive behaviour including gambling, hypersexuality, binge eating, obsessive shopping and others. There’s a specific section of this forum for discussion of impulsive and compulsive behaviour 9(ICB) and our ICB work.
