Hello. Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) can show some side effects. Neuropsychiatric side effects are possible. Those would be: hallucinations, apathy, compulsive gambling and depression. Hypersexuality and cognitive disorders are also something that may occur. Nevertheless, these side effects can be temporary. Smaller percent of the patients can show voyeurism or suicide attempt. You should discuss with an expert for details. I hope I’ve helped. Bye!
