Lewy Body Dementia is a condition closely associated with Parkinson's disease, and the people who are troubled by both often face severe side effects from Parkinson's meds. The patients often hallucinate and even converse with the illusions.

After Williams death, his wife had told authorities that he had been complaining about the meds and the way they made him feel, and the documents also show that the comedic actor had been struggling with the disease.
