DIP is generally treated by cessation of the offending drugs. Patients who cannot stop taking antipsychotic drugs because of their psychiatric diseases, such as those with schizophrenia or major depressive disorders, may be switched to atypical antipsychotics that have a lower risk of EPS.

Until recently, the drug-induced movement disorders related to levosulpiride were under-recognized, but it has now been shown that levosulpiride frequently causes parkinsonism. 41 Whereas metoclopramide usually induces TD, levosulpiride causes parkinsonism more frequently than TD or other EPS. Although metoclopramide and levosulpiride have the same mechanism of action, they show different patterns of adverse effects, the reason for which remains to be clarified.

Drug-induced parkinsonism (DIP) is the second-most-common etiology of parkinsonism in the elderly after Parkinson's disease (PD). Many patients with DIP may be misdiagnosed with PD because the clinical features of these two conditions are indistinguishable. Moreover, neurological deficits in patient …

Prescribing antiparkinsonian medications may threat the underlying psychopathology and cognition or exacerbate tardive dyskinesia. The clinical response highly depends on the robustness of the antipsychotic drug regime left in place for maintenance therapy. Thus, mild DIP is probably best left untreated.

Anti-psychotics and anti-nausea treatments make up the bulk of the problematic medications, although there are other medications that can also cause parkinsonism. The primary treatment for this type of parkinsonism is weaning off of the offending medication, if possible. For some people, it is not possible to stop the problematic medication.

Pharmacologic treatment approaches for DIP have commonly included anticholinergic agents such as benztropine; however, anticholinergic medications can make TD worse. Switching the antipsychotic medication to one with lower propensity for DIP is an option for some patients.

Drug-induced parkinsonism is defined as the appearance of parkinsonism on treatment with pharmaceutical agents. Symptoms typically manifest within a few days, and 90% of cases emerge within 3 months.

GI prokinetic drugs, including metoclopramide, levosulpiride, clebopride, itopride, and domperidone, have also been associated with DIP. These drugs have been used clinically to manage motor disorders of the upper GI tract, including functional dyspepsia and emesis.

to treat drug-induced parkinsonism if the person cannot stop taking the offending drug. However, like anticholinergic drugs, amantadine may also cause confusion, and sometimes psychosis in older people, and therefore is more suitable for younger people with drug-induced parkinsonism. Can these drugs aggravate existing

Use of l-dopa or anticholinergic agents may be indicated and effective. 1 Symptoms should eventually resolve if the parkinsonism was drug-induced. 1 In our experience, levodopa and dopamine agonists can potentially improve most features of parkinsonism, though they may be less effective in alleviating severe neuroleptic-induced tremor.
