It looks to me from his meds that he has problem with side effect from the Prochloroperazine... known for "EXTRAPYRAMIDAL" side effects which mimic Parkinson's in many ways >>
He should probably come off this medication..
Consult with his doctor on this..

It sounds that he has several factors that may contribute to some symptoms in his case. Most effects which may have been side effects of the Prochloperazine should be finishing within days....I would not expect much if any lasting side effects of this beyond 5 to 7 days...
You had also noted that he seemed to have early Parkinson's type symptoms before starting meds ...so he may have been in early stage of Parkinson's before but made dramatically worse by the medication...
This would make sense with his improvement and neurologist starting Levadopa ...
The anxiety and insomnia may be associated with other factors it seems ...
If he has ongoing trouble with these symptoms then that may need to be addressed separately
You note that he is currently in hospital which in itself would tend to make anxiety and insomnia worse for most people...
