Customer Question
If I have dry eye...
If I have dry eye syndrome, but I desperately need to take one or two 25mg doses of Atarax in order to break my string of sleepless nights, should I be concerned that it could worsen my symptoms irrepairably, or might the effects only be temporary? Thank you in advance.
