My father was taking Xet CR plus 25 one tablet after meals and Qutan 100 mg as advised by the doctor. After few days, he has stopped taking it. He is not taking it now. He has some changes in his behavior. Sometimes, he cries for small stuff. Sometimes he becomes angry. He also acts like a child and asks for something to eat. Is there any alternative medicine? Previously, I asked the doctor and he told me that my father has to continue taking it.
