Whats causing this

My mom is 83 and has Parkinsons, recently she has  U.T.I, and ws also put on Effexor a month and a half ago.  She has had U.T.I before and she had confusion with it.  This time she also became confused and also acted very anxious.  Now that the infection is gone I have noticed that the anxiety and confusion continue,  she has also been complaining of blurred vision, headaches,weakness, bad taste in her mouth, and her incontinence has gotten severe.  I read the side affects of effexor and these fit.  She takes sinimet for her parkinsons.  Im wondering if we should try removing the effexor to see if she improves. Shes on the lowest dose.
