Are there any side effects to the medicines used in Parkinson’s treatment?

Long years of medical therapy in Parkinson’s patients bring some side effects of the medicines. Especially dopamine usage for a long time introduces some involuntary movements that we call dyskinesia. The patients, when they use this medicine in high doses, the disease symptoms improves, but they may experience uncontrolled, involuntary movements as if they are restless or dancing, and thus discomfort as they increase over time in the long run.

Apart from that, some of the medicines that are used for Parkinson’s treatment bring some side effects such as psychiatric problems, poor concentration, hallucinating, sleep disorder, and especially nightmares during sleep, all due to long time usage of the medicines.
