In brief: Many treatments
There are so many medications used to treat parkinson's disease that it is not possible to list all or even just the most common side effects in such a small space.
I suggest looking at: http://www.Parkinson.Org/parkinson-s-disease/treatment/medications-for-motor-symptoms-of-pd there are good links at the bottom of the page that list the medications, doses and side effects.

In brief: Yes, but manageable
The most common side effects of the Dopamine meds are nausea/vomiting (sin-emet = "without-vomit" in latin); sleepiness, low BP (orthostatic hypotension); sweating g or hot flashes; dyskinesia; confusion; psychosis (hallucinations/delusional thought).
Rx must be tailored for each to avoid individual reactions. Despite more side-effects from Dopamine agonists, they should be used vs just sinemet!
