What can we do?
Pl..suggest..Is Shelcall tab..is
Not good for her?
Can be renal failure or neurological cause.
Thanks for posting your query.
The feeling of drowsiness and confusion can be due to renal failure or a neurological cause. Shelcal tablet will not cause any such serious symptoms. She needs an immediate medical evaluation to find out the cause of such symptoms.
It is best to take her to an emergency room and get her proper evaluation done.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
