Brief Answer:
Rule out TIA(Transient ischemic attack)

Detailed Answer:
Hello Sir

Thank you for asking to HCM

Did you stop the drug abruptly or as advised by his neurologist..?

At his age, possible causes are cerebellar ataxia,metachromatic leukodystrophy,vertebral artery stenosis etc

A thorough neuro exam including MRI brain,vertebral doppler study is needed to help him out..More than medical management,he needs better assistance(partner) throughout his life.

Hope this helps
