Dopamine agonists and gambling

Posted by ed_uk on July 15, 2005, at 15:04:52

Parkinsonís and gambling

Dopamine agonists may cause some patients to start gambling, a study suggests (Archives of Neurology 2005;62:1). Case studies of 11 patients with Parkinsonís disease who had developed pathological gambling revealed that the gambling often began and ended with initiation and discontinuation of dopamine agonist therapy. Nine of the 11 patients were taking pramipexole.
