I have my pd for about six years I wake every couple of hours and to take half a pill to move I wish I could sleep continuously

Yes, it’s a pain isn’t it? I used to be able to sleep for England, but now the only place I’m guaranteed to drop off is in front of the telly. Do you think your meds need tweaking? I have to say I started sleeping much better once we’d added rasagiline to the pramipexole.

Hi Titch, I had same problem sleeping.

My PD nurse gave me co beneldopa slow release. (SR was mentioned by Turnip). I now sleep for England.

Not everyone is the same so it might just be me......I now have Rip Van Winkle syndrome. LOL
