Low blood pressure is frequent in the akinetic form of Parkinson's disease. A low renin activity in plasma as well as a low rate of aldosterone secretion is demonstrated in these patients. Renin activity in the plasma is further decreased by treatment with L-dihy-droxyphenylalanine, thus partially accouinting for the hypotensive episodes seen with this form of therapy.
