Hello. I'm looking for some assitance. My father-in-law is taking the following medications: Provigil, Cymbalta, Ambien, and high blood pressure (not exactly sure what).
Here's the issue. He has sustained significant erratic behavior. He has "spells" where he doesn't recognize anyone and he tells his wife and kids to leave him alone because they aren't doing anything to help. He is not aggressive, but he is persistant when having these spells. He has been hospitalized in both a regular hospital (where they basically just dope him up) and also at a behavioral health facility.
His normal doctor seemed to think his Provigil dosage was too much, so it was lowered. He was fine for a week, then had another spell and is currently back in the hospital.
He takes the Provigil and Cymbalta at the same time during the morning. From what I have read, these need to be taken at seperate ends of the day. Could him taking them so closely together cause these "spells"?
Thanks for any responses in advance.
