The authors prospectively screened 297 patients with Parkinson disease (PD), who attended a tertiary clinic, using a modified South Oaks Gambling Scale. Lifetime prevalence of pathologic gambling (PG) was 3.4% and on any dopamine agonist was 7.2%. PG was associated with earlier PD onset and with dopamine agonists but not with agonist subtype or doses. We found no association with a potent D3 receptor agonist.
