Hi Hema,
The medicines prescribed to your father are anti-psychotics (oleanz) and anti-epileptics (zen). I presume that a CT scan or MRI scan of the brain have been done and they are normal. We also should exclude any problems with serum electrolytes (such as sodum). If sodium level in the blood is low, a person can have irrelevant talk. Please continue to closely watch your father. If his condition does not improve, you may consult a neurologist for detailed evaluation and treatment.
Best wishes,
