Some medications can also cause tremors, so ask your doctor about the medications you are currently taking. This causes frequent nocturnal sleep stage disruption and results in a failure of a normal amount of the deep restorative sleep that is required to feel awake during the day. The progress of the illness over time may reveal it is not Parkinson's disease, and some authorities recommend that the diagnosis should be periodically reviewed. [18] [60] Other causes that can secondarily produce a parkinsonian syndrome are Alzheimer's disease, multiple cerebral infarction and drug-induced parkinsonism. [60] Parkinson plus syndromes such as progressive supranuclear palsy and multiple system atrophy must be ruled out. [18] Anti-Parkinson's medications are typically less effective at controlling symptoms in Parkinson plus syndromes. [18] Faster progression rates, early cognitive dysfunction or postural instability, minimal tremor or symmetry at onset may indicate a Parkinson plus disease rather than PD itself. [61] Genetic forms are usually classified as PD, although the terms familial Parkinson's disease and familial parkinsonism are used for disease entities with an autosomal dominant or recessive pattern of inheritance. [19] Medical organizations have created diagnostic criteria to ease and standardize the diagnostic process, especially in the early stages of the disease.
