He has been taking Paroxetine tablets, USP, 20 mg, one tablet 2 times a day, Lisinopril, 1 - 10mg tablet once a day, and Aleve for pain. He has been taking the Paroxetine for a few months, and didn't start exhibiting these disturbing symptoms until the last month or two, beginning with slurring his words some and looking tired or kind of doppy. Only the last few weeks have the symptoms of being incoherent and forgetful surfaced. His dad has Type 2 diabetes, and no, he has not been checked or had any blood work for at least 6 + months. Please help. Thank you.
We appreciated the information the Dr. gave us, and yes, we gave him a good rating. Our son saw a doctor the following Friday AM and found out that his blood pressure was 210/120, but blood sugar was normal. His blood pressure med was increased and another one added, plus labwork which came back good, and a followup with the doctor on Monday AM. He will be seeing the doctor once a month, while monitoring his blood pressure at home and watching his diet. Again, we appreciated the doctor giving us a direction to go, and because of him, our son realized how serious this is and agreed to seek medical attention. Now he has a doctor here to follow him and help as he needs it. Thank you!
