Hi there. I can understand what you are saying, so many medicines any one will get perturbed. I think your father has parkinson’s disease, he is taking furesemide and potassium( frusemide causes hypokalemia), lisinopril, ecotrin (aspirin) for probably hypertension .allopurinol for gout, cholesterol pill for high cholesterol, mometasone, furmoterol, albuterol inhalers for bronchial asthma. Various psychiatric disturbances may occur during levodopa-carbidopa therapy. Such disturbances include memory loss, anxiety, nervousness, agitation, restlessness, confusion, inability to sleep, nightmares, daytime tiredness, mental depression or euphoria. Consult a neurologist for the symptoms that he is suffering from. Though all drugs appear important for the condition that they are tackling, therapies can be modified to reduce hallucination. Take care.
