Abstract

Parkinson's Disease Patients with Dopamine-Related Personality Features

Pragati Singh

Patients with Parkinson's Disease (PD) can develop behavioural addictions such as excessive gambling or get hooked on their own medicine in rare cases. This is remarkable because PD patients have a low rate of drug usage and a personality type that is opposed to the addicted personality. The relationship between dopamine, personality, and addiction is demonstrated by these unusual addictive diseases, which appear to be caused by excessive dopaminergic pharmaceutical usage. In rare situations, patients with Parkinson's Disease (PD) develop behavioural addictions such as excessive gambling or become addicted to their treatment. This is interesting since Parkinson's patients have a low drug usage rate and a personality type that is opposed to the addicted personality. These uncommon addictive disorders, which appear to be caused by excessive dopaminergic medication use, show the link between dopamine, personality, and addiction.
