Side effects of Levodopa after brain injury?

My husband is using Levodopa after a brain injury. He has been using Levodopa for one and a half years now. The doctor has lowered his dose lately but I feel that he is having strong side effects and feel he should stop the medication. What do you think?
The side effects he is having are at times heavy breathing, says his heart 'feels funny,' usually at the end of the duration. His right arm has strong jerking at times, confusion at times, Up all night maybe once a week.

I would appreciate any comment.
Thank you
