Hi Doctor (I need some advice please)
My dad is 87 years old he was admitted into a full care nursing home 12 months ago because he was unable to walk anymore due to getting polio at the age 2
Other than that his general health was good.
Not long after admitting him into the nursing home he starting losing his voice & was struggling to talk (Sounded like he had a dry throat)
He then started imaging things, saying things that were not true & even getting angry.
He sometimes gets a swollen thong.
The doctor at the nursing home has put him on the medication I have listed below.
I am wondering if the medication that he is on is causing these problems?
If so what should I do?
