My dad takes both of these daily, usually within 4 to 6 hours of each other and has been doing so for several weeks. This morning, when he got out of bed, he couldn't lift one of his arms and could hardly talk. The effects went away after a little while. I'm thinking it happened from his mixing the 2 medications, but I don't know for sure. Does anyone know what could have caused it? It freaked dad and mom out, especially mom.
It sounds to me like he may have had a small stroke. He should get to the ER asap to be evaluated by a Dr. If it was a small stroke, it is possible that he could have another larger one that wont go away! Common symptoms of stroke are one sided weakness or paralysis, confusion and inability to speak coherently. This is nothing to mess with or ignore! Chances are greater than 50% he could have another. He needs to be seen in the ER where they will do scans to see if there is a bleed or an occlusion near the brain. It is not due to the medicines. I truly hope that I am wrong but to be sure he needs to go to the ER NOW and tell them what happened.
