The first years of Parkinson disease (PD) treatment are marked by good and sustained responses to dopaminergic therapy. With disease progression and longer exposure to levodopa (l‐dopa), patients develop a range of l‐dopa–induced complications that include motor and non‐motor symptoms. Motor complications include motor fluctuations, characterized by periods of reduced benefit from the medication, and l‐dopa–induced dyskinesia, characterized by emergence of hyperkinetic involuntary movements… Expand

TLDR
2 reviews provide a global picture of the clinical spectrum of L-dopa–induced complications and of the major trials that have been conducted in this field since 2013; and the reader will also find a compilation of original approaches and focused studies exploring the same topic. Expand
Treatment of Levodopa-Induced Dyskinesia in Parkinson’s Disease
TLDR
Prevention of LID is key by keeping individual doses of levodopa as low as possible but with good motor control in the long term, by treating the OFF periods. Expand
Motor and Nonmotor Complications of Levodopa: Phenomenology, Risk Factors, and Imaging Features
TLDR
Although refinement in types of dopamine replacement therapy and delivery systems have improved the management of l‐dopa‐related complications, the search for the ideal treatment continues and the treatment remains challenging and is an unmet need. Expand
Medical Management and Prevention of Motor Complications in Parkinson’s Disease
TLDR
The clinical features, epidemiology, and risk factors for the development of motor complications, as well as strategies for their prevention and medical management are reviewed. Expand
Motor Complications of Dopaminergic Medications in Parkinson's Disease
TLDR
The authors summarize the different types of motor complications according to phenomenology and the currently available medical treatments, including ongoing trials for the management of this condition. Expand

  • 2014
TLDR
The treatment of late stage PD remains problematic with non-motor symptoms dominating the unmet need in this patient group with new pharmacological options expanding with the advent of longer acting versions of existing dopaminergic drugs, new drug delivery systems and the introduction of non-dopaminergic agents able to manipulate motor function both within the basal ganglia and in other brain regions. Expand

TLDR
The most common type of dyskinesia, called “peak‐dose dyskinese”, usually consists of stereotypical choreic or ballistic movements involving the head, trunk, and limbs, and occasionally, the respiratory muscles, whereas tremor and punding are less‐common complications. Expand
Pharmacological treatment and the prospect of pharmacogenetics in Parkinson’s disease
TLDR
The present pharmacological treatment of PD, including dopamine agonists, catechol‐O‐methyltransferase inhibitors and monoamine oxidase‐B inhibitors, and current pharmacogenetic data for PD are reviewed. Expand
Disordered respiration as a levodopa‐induced dyskinesia in Parkinson's disease
TLDR
Two patients with PD in whom the introduction or augmentation of L‐dopa therapy was associated with the development of irregular and rapid breathing are reported on, and the temporal relationship of the respiratory disturbance to the administration of L-dopa suggested a peak‐dose drug effect. Expand
Levodopa-induced dyskinesias in patients with Parkinson's disease: filling the bench-to-bedside gap
TLDR
Preclinical and clinical findings suggest pulsatile stimulation of striatal postsynaptic receptors as a key mechanism underlying levodopa-induced dyskinesias, but the pathogenesis of these mechanisms is still unclear. Expand
Levodopa-induced-dyskinesias clinical features, incidence, risk factors, management and impact on quality of life.
TLDR
Treatment strategies to overcome levodopa-induced dyskinesias include adjustment of timing, type and amount of dopaminergic medication, treatment with amantadine and, in treatment resistant cases, stereotactic surgery involving deep brain stimulation or lesioning procedures. Expand
Levodopa‐induced dyskinesias in Parkinson's disease: Clinical and pharmacological classification
TLDR
Clinical and pharmacological results indicate that LID in PD are a heterogeneous phenomenon difficult to explain on the basis of a single pathophysiological mechanism. Expand
The spectrum of levodopa‐related fluctuations in Parkinson's disease
TLDR
The most commonly encountered form of fluctuating response is the predictable “wearing-off” of levodopa motor benefit, causing a transition from relative mobility to increased parkinsonism, with a return to the “on” state after the next dose of Levodopa. Expand
Levodopa and the progression of Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
The clinical data suggest that levodopa either slows the progression of Parkinson's disease or has a prolonged effect on the symptoms of the disease, and the neuroimaging data suggest either thatlevodopa accelerates the loss of nigrostriatal dopamine nerve terminals or that its pharmacologic effects modify the dopamine transporter. Expand
Levodopa‐induced dyskinesias in Parkinson's disease phenomenology and pathophysiology
TLDR
There is no strict dichotomy between biphasic and monophasic dyskinesias induced by levodopa in Parkinson's disease, and there is a “continuum” between the first dysKinesias and those observed during the period of maximal clinical improvement. Expand
End‐of‐dose dystonia in Parkinson's disease
TLDR
Dystonia onset appears to reflect the degree, rather than the rate, of reduction in dopaminergic stimulation, and may involve the preferential interaction of dopamine with a receptor subpopulation that does not mediate its antiparkinsonian efficacy. Expand
