    Which of the following anti-Parkinson drug may cause peripheral vasospasm?
    a) Ropinirole
    b) Amantadine
    c) Bromocriptine
    d) Carbidopa
    Answer: Bromocriptine

    Explanation:
    Bromocriptine is a dopamine receptors agonist
    that may cause peripheral vasospasm. It is
    contraindicated in patients with peripheral
    vascular disease.
    Ropinirole directly stimulate the dopamine
    receptors but it doesn’t cause vasospasm.
    Amantadine and Carbidopa do not act directly
    act on dopamine receptors.
