My mom has been taking Parkinson's medicine with dyclocimine (for irritable bowel syndrome) and dulcolax (for constipation). Since Saturday, she has had severe paranoid hallucinations. She hears, but mostly sees things that are not there. She was convinced that there were burglars in our house so she called the police twice. I need to know if these drugs mixed together can cause such horrible hallucinations. Should she completely stop taking the dyclocimine and dulcolax or can she still take them in moderation? Please help!

16 hour drive. If the lights were on, all was fine, but if the lights were off and all there was the headlights, things would jump out of the shadows into the center vision. Robotic birds, women in brown cloaks, always rushing forward. there was screaming and ducking of the head the whole time and forgetting to be driving. Startled as if just waking up.
This type of experience is with 500-800mg of lyrica and only with a dark setting or eyes closed. Day time, shadows would appear in the peripheral zone of vision or audio disturbances such as echos.
