I am taking sinemet 3.15 + 4 stalevo + 3 madapar + 2 sinemet a day, are there side effect to taking all these , it seems a lot of meds

Smiffys friend
Breathing difficulties
I am trying to help a friend get to the cause of his breathlessness. He has had the op to help with the shaking, this has been successful, but is taking 1200 mg per day of madopar, in six doses. He is also taking 100mg of symetrel and 16mg of neupro (patches). He can barely walk 5 yards without wheezing and needing to rest. He is a member of a Parkinson group, but no-one there is displaying his kind of symptom. Can anyone help ?
