A dry mouth is a rare side effect of Prilosec (omeprazole). In clinical studies, less than 1% of people reported a dry mouth/felling thirsty as one of Prilosec's side effects.
Some of these suggestions include:
* Sipping water or sugarless drinks often.

* Avoiding drinks with caffeine, such as coffee, tea, and some sodas. Caffeine can dry out the mouth.
