Thank you for posting your query.Syndopa
(levodopa and carbidopa combination) is known to produce postural hypotension
(drop in blood pressure on standing). So, the dose of syndopa can be reduced to half tablets three times daily.
If his symptoms of Parkinson's disease worsen, then, additional ropinirole
may be added to his drug regimen.
In addition, he should be made to sit through most of the day (instead of lying down), and regular physiotherapy
should be done.
I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.
Wishing you good health,
