Sorry for the long wait, I just logged in and saw this.

Both of these medications can cause pretty significant neurologic signs- lethargy (sometimes even agitation), muscle tremors, seizures.

I would recommend going to a vet to have him placed on IV fluids and monitoring for 12-24 hours. Any tremors or seizures can be treated with anti-convulsants. Most dogs will have a full recovery within 12-24 hours with appropriate care.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
