Hallucinations appear to be a possible side effect of most anti-Parkinson drugs. Responses and side effects vary from one person to the next.

Sinemet...Sinemet CR
Confusion and visual hallucinations can be related to long-term use of these medications; this is often dose-related, and can be minimized by reducing the total daily dose of C/L under the direction of your physician.

Requip
All Parkinson's patients should be informed that syncope or symptomatic hypotension may occur more frequently during initial treatment and hallucinations can occur at any time during the course of treatment.

Requip
Hallucinations may occur, but are more common with other dopamine agonists, not Ropinirole or Requip.

Mirapex
Orthostatic hypotension - a drop in blood pressure when an individual stands up - and hallucinations have been reported with Pramipexole or Mirapex, although both more often occur in late Parkinson's disease.

Tasmar
Tolcapone or Tasmar's most common side effects include diarrhea, sleep disturbances, and hallucinations.

However, we are all individuals with differing symptoms and differing reactions to our unique (and again individual) regimes of pharmacotherapy. It is important to remember that each patient has their own specific Parkinson's Disease clinical picture and individualized, tailored treatment is an absolute must. If you experience hallucinations you should seek the advice of your licensed healthcare provider.
