Trauma and Dementia

06/23/2008

Question:

My dad was in a stopped car along a highway and was hit by a car at 70mph. Luckily no broken bones, but was trapped in the car and had been hit in the head with a gearney that was in the back of the car. He was relased and sent home. Several days later, he began taking Tylenol PM and began hallucinating and having involuntary twitches. Mom took him to the emergency room and the hospital stated that the Tylenol PM had brought this on. Is that possible or has the trauma brought on dementia?
