My uncle was diagnosed with Schizophrenia years ago. In the past 3 years of so he has developed Epilepsy, as well. He is taking 2 medications - one for the Schizophrenia and one for the Epilepsy and seizures. Recently we've noticed a major change - he cannot perform very simple things with his hands such as using a screwdriver, backing up a car, or pushing down a lever to move something.. The actions seem to "complicated" and he gets frustrated and can't do it. Could this be caused by the 2 medications suppressing brain activity, is this normal or should he go see a doctor abotu this immediately?
