Phentermine and Dry Mouth: Recommendations
For people taking phentermine, there are some things that you can do to help with a dry mouth. Some of these suggestions include:
Try to avoid drinks with caffeine, such as coffee, tea, and many sodas. Caffeine can dry out the mouth.
Don't use tobacco or alcohol, as they can dry out the mouth.
Sip water or sugarless drinks often.
Sip water or sugarless drinks during meals. This will make chewing and swallowing easier; it may also improve the taste of food.
Be aware of spicy or salty foods because they may cause pain in a dry mouth.
Chew sugarless gum or suck on sugarless hard candy to stimulate saliva flow; cinnamon- or mint-flavored candies are good choices.
It is important to understand that a dry mouth can be more than just uncomfortable or annoying; a severe or long-lasting dry mouth can actually cause dental problems.
Could also cause headaches, please seek medical attention, hope the info helps? Take care, be well & safe!
