Hello I have just started taking citalopram and I am getting a very dry mouth and tongue. Has anyone experienced this and does it get better.
I have dry mouth from my medicines. I since have started using Biotene mouthwash. If you continue with dry mouth I had good results with this product. It also comes in toothpaste, spray and gel form. Dry mouth can lead to tooth decay and other conditions with your teeth. My dentist said it is good I started using it since other mouthwash stopped working for me. That was my last resort so maybe you won't continue with it after you have been on the citalopram for awhile. Biotene is more expensive then the normal mouthwash but it is worth it. So, if it doesn't get better there is something out there specifically for this problem.
Hope this helps!
