Abstract: We report the case of a 60-year-old male who exhibited severe psychosis two years after beginning treatment with methylphenidate for hypocretin deficient narcolepsy. He also suffered from Parkinson’s disease (PD) and was treated by several medications. The psychotic episode persisted several weeks after medication cessation and required management with modified electroconvulsion therapy. Physicians should be aware that psycho-stimulants and anti-PD medications commonly prescribed for treatment of narcolepsy and PD may precipitate psychosis in those patients.
