Abstract

We report a 59 year old woman with levodopa responsive Parkinson's disease who developed excessive daytime sleepiness [Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) score of 13]. Treatment with Modafinil 400mg daily within two weeks produced a subjective improvement in her daytime sleepiness (ESS score after treatment is 8) with no significant change in her PD motor symptomotology.
