Thank you for posting your query.

Her problems could be related to another minor brain stroke. This can be ascertained by a neurological examination and repeating MRI brain.

Her hallucinations could be a side effect of amantadine, or due to parkinsonism, especially a type called as diffuse Lewy body disease. In this condition, tremors, slowness and memory disturbances may occur.

I hope it helps.

Please get back if you require any additional information.
