What is it about?

Parkinson's and Schizophrenia spectrum disorders are both thought to be linked to pathways in the brain, sometimes treating one can make the other worse. It can be hard to treat them both at the same time. This article presents a case study, as well as some accompanying research about these conditions with suggested management ideas.

Why is it important?

This is a care co-occurrence and there isn't much research available yet about how to treat both of these conditions together.


I hope people are able to use this article to think about further research needs, but also on a personal level let people know they're not struggling alone.
