This study explored the effects of antidepressants on Parkinson’s disease (PD) by using a meta-analysis. In addition to looking at the overall effect size across studies, the severity of PD, motor function, and antidepressant class were examined as moderating variables. The results show that antidepressants can improve Parkinsonian motor symptoms.
