Ask the MD: Sleep Disturbances and Parkinson's Disease

Sleep disturbances are a common non-motor symptom of Parkinson's disease (PD) that may cause difficulty falling or staying asleep. It's important to recognize and treat them not only to ensure general health is optimized, but also to maximize Parkinson's management. Sleep in PD can be affected by motor or non-motor symptoms, medication side effects, or associated conditions such as restless legs syndrome or REM sleep behavior disorder.
