Some Parkinson’s medications can lower your blood pressure. This can be an issue if a patient is already on blood pressure medication and then adds PD meds as well. Your blood pressure may drop low enough that you can become dizzy and unsteady when rising to a standing position. Be sure the doc knows all the meds you are taking.
