L-SULPIRIDE AS A CAUSE OF PARKINSON'S DISEASE

Movement Disorders [2009] Sep 30 [Epub ahead of print] (Shin HW, Kim MJ, Kim JS, Lee MC, Chung SJ.)  Complete abstract

The drug L-Sulpiride has been found to commonly cause the symptoms of Parkinson's Disease. Levosulpiride is widely used for the management of Dyspeptic Syndrome, Retarded Gastric Excretion, Vertigo, Vomiting And Nausea. For more information go to L-Sulpiride. Little was known about L-Sulpiride-induced movement disorders (LIM).

So the aim of this study was to investigate the clinical characteristics of patients with L-Sulpiride-induced movement disorders (LIM). The most common L-Sulpiride-induced movement disorder was Parkinsonism making up over 90% of cases, followed by tardive dyskinesia with about 10% of cases, and isolated tremor affecting only 3% of cases. The symptoms are often severe, and L-Sulpiride-induced movement disorders still persisted even after withdrawal of L-Sulpiride in nearly half of those patients with L-Sulpiride induced Parkinsonism.
