Abstract

Psychosis is common in patients who have PD and leads to significant disability. Patients often can be managed with nonpharmacologic interventions or with decreasing doses of antiparkinsonism medications. If these interventions are insufficient, then atypical antipsychotics should be considered. Clozapine is used in more refractory cases and requires stringent monitoring for agranulocytosis.
