Hi Esta,
Welcome to Healthcare Magic.
The tablet contains donepezil which is a medicine for Alzheimer disease. If patient has started the drug newly and has taken 20mg then he may develop gastric upset, heart rate abnormalities and even seizures and should be consulted to a physician.
If the patient is taking it for months then you can wait, he should improve with time.
Meanwhile give salt added lemon water and liquid feeds to ease the discomfort.
I hope my advise will be informative and helpful for you.
Take care!
