"In our view, these medications should be used less frequently and with great caution, paying close attention to possible untoward effects on behavior and impulse control" said Dr. Howard D Weiss of Sinai Hospital of Baltimore and Dr...
"They [doctors and caregivers of Parkinson's patients] need to be on the lookout for this kind of behavior" and understand it may be linked to the use of medication, Moore told Live Science
"Our findings confirm and extend the evidence that dopamine receptor agonist drugs are associated with serious impulse control disorders; the associations were significant, the magnitude of the effects was large and the effects were seen for all six dopamine receptor agonist drugs. ...

Our data, and data from prior studies, show the need for these prominent warnings" Thomas J Moore, A B , of the Institute for Safe Medication Practices, Alexandria Va., and colleagues wrote in their JAMA Internal Medicine article
