Dog has twitching after Previcox

Hi there - I have a 6 yr old Lhasa-poo.  He was diagnosed with UTI and given an antibiotic (can't remember that name) and Previcox for discomfort.  He reacted very badly to it - ended up in the ICU.  He seemed loopy, would walk around a wall and then just stand in the corner, almost tip over and was drooling terribly.  The ER kept him over night, put an IV in him to clean out his system and then eventually started with a different antibiotic.  He has gotten MUCH better, however there are a few things wrong that I'm concerned about - as he's laying down, he has to move his head a little bit, sort of like a twitch, and his legs will also twitch.  He also is doing something else weird - he will walk up to his water bowl but it's like his depth peception is off or something, he starts whining like he can't find the water in the bowl.  The several check ups he had in the ER checked out fine, eye sight they said was fine, he is trying to drink, wants to but gets frustrated about not finding the bowl - and when I offer him some treats, he eats them just fine.  The poor thing can't get to sleep because of the twitching, but his check ups are fine.  Will this go away????  I'm so concerned but to be honest, can't afford to keep taking him back to ER, I've spent all of my money on getting him back to life after last night.  Any help?
