Primary Outcome Measures:
  • mMIDI(modified Minnesota Impulsive Disorders Interview) [ Time Frame: 12weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To evaluate the improvement of mMIDI(Korean version) score from the baseline to 12 weeks or LOCF(Last Observation Carried Forward)

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Neuropsychiatric profile [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    To evaluate the improvement of neuropsychiatric profiles from the baseline to 12 weeks or LOCF

    * Neuropsychological assessment

    • General cognitive status: K-Minimental status exam(K-MMSE)
    • Psychiatric profile:

      • Neuropsychiatric inventory (K-NPI)
      • Beck depression inventory (BDI)
      • Barratt impulsiveness scale (BIS)
      • Beck anxiety inventory (BAI)
      • State-trait anger expression inventory (STAXI)
      • Obsessive compulsive inventory (OCI)
    • Evaluation of global change:

      • Patient global impression of improvement (PGI-I)
      • Clinical global impression of improvement (CGI-I)

Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Levodopa/Carbidopa(200mg/50mg) Drug: Levodopa/Carbidopa(200mg/50mg)

Detailed Description:
