Well he beat me to it again, lolol... I just want to add that while there is no mention of dry eyes, if it dries your mouth it can dry your eyes. I have dry mouth, eyes, and every other bit of mucus membrane in my body. I also itch constantly. This is my meds, so nothing much I can do. I have noticed that if I take an antihistamine it stops the itching. I use a gel artificial tear. Biotin is supposed to help your mouth, I haven't tried that yet. I've got my little dog scratching my back, lolol
