Brief Answer:
Carbidopa-levodopa doesn't increase the blood pressure.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

Carbidopa-Levodopa doesn't cause high blood pressure, it may lower the blood pressure instead.

Azilect, on the other hand, may exacerbate the high blood pressure.

Hope this answers your question.

Take care.
