Dr. Rick :

Dry eyes and mouth are also common in women your age just do to the effects of post menopausal changes etc.

You can use artificial tears to help with the dry eyes and lozenges for the dry mouth. You may also want to visit with your internal medicine doctor

Does this make sense to you?
