Hi Mohan,
Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
The Normaxin is a drug combination (chlordiazepoxide + clidinium bromide) mainly used by gastroenterologists for irritable bowel syndrome-the IBS. The elderly people poorly tolerate this drug especially the heart and cirrhosis patients.
Make the doses half to current levels and observe, if the problem persist then he needs stop Normaxin and switch another drug.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!
