Concussions, hallucinations. What treatment is recommended and cure period?

Hi, my name is Ariel Denio and my boyfriend was at football last week and he got 2 concussions and he has been to a Neurologist . He s having really bad hallucinations about rats in his room and just really creepy dreams and now he is starting to see them when he is not asleep. I just wanted to know what i could do to help him get through it and how long does this kind of thing last?

Ms.Ariel you need not to worry..these hallucinations are transient and shall wane off when he will be neurologically fit.very low dosages of antipsychotic like haloperidol or risperidone 1-2 mg/day may be used for 5-7 days
