A physician survey found 64% would treat patients with symptoms of hoarseness lasting at least six weeks, rather than referring them to a specialist. Researchers at the New York University School of Medicine said the survey, which included family physicians, found 85.8% would use reflux medications, 54.2% would opt for antihistamines and 41% would prescribe both, even though only 11% said their recommended regimen led to complete resolution of symptoms.
