Doctors at NeuroTrials Research in Atlanta are testing a drug that could help Parkinson’s disease patients who struggle with sleep, reports 11Alive.

“What will happen eventually is their disease symptoms and so forth will become significantly amplified,” said Dr. Michael Lacey of NeuroTrials Research in Atlanta.

He is leading a clinical trial of a medication that could bring relief.

It’s a wake-promoting drug that’s already in the pipeline for FDA approval for obstructive sleep apnea and narcolepsy.
