I wonder if anyone has any tips on sleepiness with PD. Mum is 81 and has had PD for 12 years now and in the last 3-4 years her sleepiness has become worse. It is very common for her to fall asleep whilst eating or drinking. We have tried to incorporate regular day time naps in, but that doesn’t seem to make a lot of difference.
I know drugs can add to daytime somnolence, mum is on co benaldopa and rasigiline. Any tips or experiences would be welcome?

Hi Bucks_Girl,
We found some good information on sleepiness/fatigue related to Parkinson’s here, and a few older Forum conversations around the topic in this thread. You can find more archived threads using the handy search box at the top of, and of course feel welcome to call us at 0808 800 0303 to speak with an adviser.
Best wishes to you and your Mum,
