I'm sorry your question has not received a reply before now. How is Dobby doing this morning?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
He has stopped shaking.and finally slept a few hours. I'm worried about a stroke.right side of mouth is sagging. He's more alert and going to the bathroom reg. Still can't stand up. Doing R of m exercises with his legs.doesn't want to eat.will drink water with some help.

Try blending up some food with the water and making a slurry for him to drink, if he's willing to ingest fluid.

A stroke-like event is certainly possible with meth ingestion. Over the next few days you should see an improvement if there is one to be had. If you're unable to take him to a vet, supportive care at home is the best thing you can offer.
