Unhappy 82 year old mother with Parkinsons

Hi
My mother was diagnosed with Parkinsons Disease a few months ago, she has stiffness in her legs, freezes when she walks with her walker, and has the other symptoms with this disease. The doctor put her on Carbidopa/Levo 25/100
she is starting out with 1/2 a pill 3 times a day, and the doctor is working it up to 2 or 3 tabs a day eventually. Will this pill help her to walk better and not freeze up? I quess we won't believe it until we see it! But if anyone has had this problem and found that this medication helped, I would love to hear from you! Thank you so much!
