Abstract

Treatment of Parkinson's disease (PD) is primarily focussed on motor symptoms. During the course of PD and with advancing age comorbidity as well as nonmotor PD symptoms become increasingly important. If these factors go beyond short disturbances of well-being, therapeutic consequences must be drawn. In these cases modifications of PD treatment on the one hand and treatment of associated symptoms or comorbidity on the other hand should be considered.
