I have dry mouth to the point I find myself scraping the inside of my lower lip non stop. I drink so much water & chew gum and it does not help. my teeth have become sensitive and I find myself running my tongue over teeth.
Some find that sugarless hard candies help with dry mouth. There is also an artificial saliva available-ask your pharmacist. If these do not help, then you need to speak with the prescribing Dr to let him know of this unpleasant side effect. Perhaps there are other options for you.
