      Managing PD with continuous dopaminergic stimulation.

      Take-Away Points of the Presentation

      1)    “On-off” motor fluctuations are more often a key driver of PD-related quality of life than treatment-related dyskinesias.

      2)    Mild cognitive impairment can be present in early Parkinson’s disease, while frank dementia is not uncommon in advanced PD.

      3)    Impulse control disorders affects up to 1 in 6 PD patients on dopamine agonists.

       

          

        Pre- and Post-Test Questions

        1)    Motor fluctuations are significantly influenced by

                    a) too much dopaminergic medication

                    b) age of onset

                    c) fewer remaining dopaminergic neurons as disease advances

                    d) all of the above

        2)    Mild cognitive impairment present at the time of presentation of motor symptoms constitutes a diagnosis of Lewy Body Dementia.

                    True or False.

        3)    Antipsychotic medications are an effective way to treatment impulse control disorders in PD patients.

                    True or False.
