Thanks for your query at HCM!
I suggest that your father has lot many problems.
I advise him to test his urine by automated test like phoenix BD to determine the MIC(Minimum inhibitory concentration) of drugs. He can then be started on drugs with low MIC and toxicity due to his health issues.
Take care!
