Session Description: This session will outline the primary symptoms of drug-induced parkinsonism as well as tardive dyskinesia, akathisia and other movement disorders. Causative agents, diagnostics and potential treatments will be discussed. We will also describe how the introduction of dopamine blocking medications might “unmask” prodromal idiopathic Parkinson disease symptoms, sometimes confounding proper diagnosis. Case presentations will provide a platform for differential diagnosis of traditional idiopathic Parkinson’s disease in contrast with drug-induced parkinsonism and the respective treatment approaches for each of these disorders.
Highlight difference between symptoms associated with idiopathic Parkinson's disease (IPD) and symptoms associated with drug-induced parkinsonism.
Outline treatment approaches for addressing drug-induced Parkinson's.
Identify differences in treatment approaches appropriate for early, mid-stage and late stage idiopathic Parkinson's disease.
