It is true what you say about Levadopa your friend that had hallucinations did get it from the drug. Some times though it is not allways the drug it is the condition. A lot of people who have PD also get REM (Rapid eye movement)  basic description When you go to sleep and you dream you do just that and your brain sort of freeze's but with REM you act out your dreams. You can do  hand gestures which can lead to violent thrashing,punching,kicking you can injur yourself or partner. jump out of bed. run into walls, striking a bed partner.shouting swearing at top of there voice. It very hard to wake the person up, Often people who have REM end up getting PD.Its not only the Levasdopa drug but from another drug you can get impulsive and compulsive behavior.  There are other drugs with    side effects but to many too metion. 

 

If you want tp know more about side effects have a look at Parkinson's uk web sight.

By the time my friend's husband was seeing Jerry the mouse, he was on very high doses of levadopa drugs, Mary. Sadly, he also developed lewy body dementia which can sometimes occur in association with Parkinson's.

 

Eventually, my mother was on no medication at all but still saw things: flowers and people, usually. Thankfully, nothing nasty.  The brain is a strange organ.

I hope that mention will be made of PSP or Progressive Supra Nuclear Palsy and MSA or Multiple System Atrophy. These are both Parkinson's umbrella conditions which do not respond to levadopa drugs. My mum had the latter and, although it is now fourteen years since she was diagnosed with a condition she didn't have, I hope there is more understanding and awareness among medics than there was then. It seemed that only the Parkinson's specialist nurse had ever heard of them.
