Parkinson’s disease is a progressive and debilitating movement disorder that is diagnosed by its motor signs. The behavioral manifestations of Parkinson's disease are prevalent and frequently complicate the course of the disease. These may be due to the illness itself or its treatment and are often more disabling than the motor symptoms. This review focuses on the management of the most common behavioral symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, including depression, anxiety, psychosis, dementia, and sleep disorders.
