Psychiatrist 's  Response
Thanks for using healthcare magic.

I have gone through your available history.

Alcohol is main culprit of all symptoms in case of your husband.
You should take him to any deaddiction center/psychiatrist for detailed evaluation and management.

He may require hospitalization for control of alcohol. He needs regular deaddiction psychotherapy to stop taking alcohol.
