My dad was recently given Azilect to help his parkinsons. Now he is so confused that he can not do everyday activities. Its like his brain can not think of how to balance a check book. Where things are in the house and certaintly can't drive right now. He has been taken off of the medacine but how long does the effects last?

Thank you so much for letting me know that. We have been in the hospital and gone to his neurologist and its not his parkinson's so they think it is something else so more tests to come. Really appreciate your help.
