Pramipexole-treated Parkinson's disease during pregnancy

Mov Disord. 2004 Sep;19(9):1114-5. doi: 10.1002/mds.20148.


There are few reports about drug-related effects on PD pregnancy. We describe the case of a woman affected by PD treated with pramipexole monotherapy during pregnancy. The child, born by caesarean delivery, is healthy, whereas motor disability of the mother progressively increased to the point that levodopa therapy was necessary.
