The link between compulsive behaviours and dopamine treatment
Why is it important?
Dopamine receptor agonists are a common therapy for Parkinson’s, restless leg syndrome and other conditions—about 2.1 million prescriptions for dopamine receptor agonists were issued in the last part of 2012 alone. Compulsive behaviors can have severe negative consequences on the lives of patients and their families. These findings reinforce the importance of patient monitoring for these behaviours and underscores the need for clear communication to patients and care partners regarding risk.
