Abstract

Nineteen patients who were receiving L-dopa for parkinsonism were interviewed to assess the effect of L-dopa treatment on sexual behavior. Seven patients (37 percent) reported an activation of sexual behavior at some point during the therapy. Interview data suggested that such a report may actually result from at least three possible effects of L-dopa.
