Eugenia Yiannakopoulou, MD, MSc, PhD, University of West Attica, Athens, Greece, discusses the treatment modalities for sialorrhea in Parkinson’s disease. The first line of treatment should be non-pharmacological approaches, followed by anticholinergics as a second line. Lastly, as a third line of treatment, botulinum toxin should be considered and the adverse effects taken into account.
