Parkinson’s disease–related hallucinations and delusions may be more common than you think

Around 50% of people living with Parkinson’s disease (PD) may experience hallucinations and/or delusions over the course of their disease, and these symptoms can get worse over time.

Whether these symptoms occur sometimes or have become more frequent, it’s important to share your experiences with your healthcare provider. The sooner your doctor knows about new or worsening symptoms, the sooner they can help.
