Recommendation ID

Rapid eye movement sleep behaviour disorder treatment:- What is the best first-line treatment for rapid eye movement sleep behaviour disorder (RBD) in people with Parkinson's disease?

Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)

Why this is important:- The guideline committee highlighted the importance of minimising RBD, for both people with Parkinson's disease and their carers, particularly because of potential safety concerns. Only 1 paper was found to address optimal management, and this involved people in whom first-line treatment had failed. With multiple possible treatment options and no current evidence on what the most effective first-line treatment is, research (in the form of randomised controlled trials) in
this area would be beneficial.
