Hi

Asking for my father:
He is 63 years old and dibetic from last 8 years. Lately he is also patient of hypertension. Doctor advised him the medicines (Formula name)

Bromazepam 1.5
Paroxetine HCL
Domperidone Maleate + Cinnarizine

After taking these medicine, he is feeling doozy all day, almost sleeping. Is this normal. Also he is urinating more than normal. Is it ok

User avatar Hello,Cinnarizine is an antihistamine with sedating action on the inner ear by blocking the calcium channels.The side effects would include drowsiness.Also it can potentate the action of barbiturates leading to more sedation.
Though this is possible ,you should not treat the drowsiness in a diabetic lightly.Hyperglycemia,hypoglycemia,and keto- acidosis all can mimic this.So you must get your dad examined by a doctor to make sure that it is nothing more than a drug side effect.
Best wishes.
