This excerpt may be helpful. It is taken from a write up on PD by the University of Maryland Medical Center:

"Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) has been used to treat Parkinson's disease, but not without some controversy. Vitamin B6 can interfere with the metabolism of certain Parkinson's medications, making them less effective. Some naturally oriented physicians have used vitamin B6 for that very reason, to reduce the side effects of these medications. If your doctor suggests such an approach, the treatment should be done only by prescription and with the knowledge of all prescribing doctors."
