I would have patients with Parkinson's disease get clearance from their treating neurologist, or I would personally speak with the patient's neurologist before any injections. I am not familiar with the medications that you have asked about.
With fillers I am more concerned about possible autoimmune disease interactions than neuromuscular problems. Be well.
