GLINCOLN; Normally they don't recommend giving this to older patients for more than a short period. Long-term use is not recommended, If what you are thinking is he is still having problems with it in his system this is normally short acting and any confusion should go away after no more than a few days. if he is still having problems you should talk with the doctor.
