Hallucinations and Parkinson's

Posted on March 08, 2018

Some people with Parkinson’s Disease experience non-motor symptoms, such as hallucinations, delusions or paranoia. These can be very difficult for both the Parkinson’s patient and the caregiver. Members say that these symptoms can be a result of the Parkinson’s Disease itself, medications’ side effects, or sometimes from infections, such as a urinary tract infection (UTI), or even from dehydration.

On MyParkinsonsTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with Parkinson’s disease, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Hallucinations are one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about hallucinations:

Is it normal to have hallucinations when I wake up?

My spouse sometimes talks about things that don't make sense. Could it be hallucinations?

Does anyone else have olfactory hallucinations?

Here are some conversations about hallucinations:

My medications contributed to my hallucinations.

My husband had his first delusions - I feel so helpless and he is so scared.

Any suggestions for in-home care strategies for a Parkinson's patient with pretty severe hallucinations and delusions?
