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!
