Hallucinations and Delusions in Parkinson’s Disease

Friday, March 23, 2018
Erica Hornthal

It might be surprising to learn that 20 to 30 percent of people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) will experience visual hallucinations. While typically not a symptom of PD itself, they can develop as a result to a change in PD medication or as a symptom of an unrelated infection or illness. It is important to know the signs of hallucinations and how to manage them.   


Like people with other chronic diseases, people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) often struggle with mental health difficulties.
