... for Burning Mouth?
Hi. Amitriptyline does help but is not a cure. I have been told there is no known factor why it happens. Mine started back in Feb.2011 and it was explosive, the burning, singeing, scolding, metallic taste was so powerful and it continued until I started taking amitriptyline in the October, the 19th I think, which took about four weeks or so to get into my system and it helped calm the symptons down, but recently I am getting back the hot burning sensation but not so much. The product I am finding which helps very much and I have tried a lot, it is the Boots own make Expert Dental Dry Mouth Spray, I have one with me most of the time. Keep going with the Amiyriptyline because it does work, but it also can give you an extremely dry mouth and throat, it effects me expecially during the night when I am sleeping and the dryness wakes me up too many times, I rarely get a night sleep without having to have a drink. I have also asked if I can be given another medication and have been told that at the moment the amtytripline seems to be the most suitable one. I have also lost quite a bit with regard to taste. There is no answer at the moment, if anyone has a answer for BMS we would be so grateful. Hope this helps. Regards June
