BIPARK-1 was a Phase III, randomised, double-blind placebo- and active-controlled study of opicapone as an adjunct to levodopa therapy in which 600 patients with Parkinson's disease and motor fluctuations received once-daily opicapone (5 mg, 25 mg, or 50 mg), placebo, or 200 mg doses of the COMT inhibitor entacapone for 14 to 15 weeks.

Dosage reduction, monotherapy, or discontinuation in these patients could be helpful and could be replaced by selegiline, amantadine, or entacapone, which have no effects on EDS [45],[52] and may even reduce or resolve EDS.[4],[28],[52],[53],[54] Although clonazepam is the mainstay of treatment for RBD, given its associated risks, benzodiazepine use should generally be avoided in PD patients with EDS.
(1,20) In general, these complications are managed by the addition of a dopamine agonist, MAO-B inhibitor, or a catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) inhibitor (entacapone).
