Sleep disturbances in Parkinson's disease and parkinsonism (such as atypical parkinsonian disorders like multiple system atrophy, progressive supranuclear palsy, dementia with Lewy bodies and corticobasal degeneration) are multifactorial and as such treatment needs to be tailored to the specific patient case and sleep dysfunction. One also has to consider drug-related effects on sleep architecture. This article provides an overview of the therapeutic options for nocturnal problems in Parkinson`s disease and atypical parkinsonian disorders.
