    Make sure you are using the correct amount of this medicine. Do not use too much and do not use it too often.

Eat well, do relaxation or deep breathing exercises and practice regular exercise that you enjoy, such as walking, swimming or yoga. Try to avoid caffeine, alcohol and sugar as these can all cause mood swings or make them worse. A good night’s sleep can also help. It often helps to talk to a friend or family member even if you find this difficult. If it bothers you, consult with your doctor.
  • Coping with Darkening of eyelashes
    If your eyelashes become darker, longer or thicker as a result of using this medicine, talk to your doctor.
