Bupropion in the treatment of depression in Parkinson's disease

  • Maria Załuska (a1) and Agnieszka Dyduch (a2)

A 78-year-old female with a nine-year history of depression was hospitalized due to worsening depression and symptoms associated with Parkinson's disease (PD). Her motor abilities improved on levodopa and the depression improved after a trial of bupropion, following unsuccessful treatment with other antidepressants. We found four reports on successful treatment of depression in PD with bupropion. However, no controlled double-blind studies have been conducted so clinicians should be cautious when administering bupropion in depression in PD.
