Abstract

We report the case of a 33-year-old woman with Parkinson's disease who experienced sudden waves of sleepiness on pramipexole that placed her at high risk of falling asleep while driving. Modafinil at a dosage of 200 mg per day essentially eliminated her somnolence and fatigue and allowed her to continue on pramipexole.
