The authors present here two cases of Parkinson's disease with depression refractory to SSRIs treatment, who experienced a complete remission after replacing the ongoing SSRIs with a serotonin-noradrenalin reuptake inhibitor (SNRI), milnacipran. The case reports suggest that milnacipran may be one of the treatment options for depression in patients with Parkinson's disease who had inadequate response to SSRIs. Further studies are warranted to confirm this observation.
