From having dry mouth plus a long walk in front of me, I took a mouth full of water. Not ridiculous full but enough to keep my tongue soaked. At the end of that few mile walk, my tongue didn't want to let me open my mouth. Soak your tongue for a while, depends on dry mouth but it cures dry mouth and is as refreshing as that first drink. Tried other fluids and liquids and water is highly recommended for this remedy. Try it.
I'm sorry you are having this problem because I have it too plus dry eye syndrome.
- Dry mouth is a very common side effect of many medications.
Are you thirst too?
- Is it possible you are not drinking enough fluids? Keep daily track of amount of water. No coffee, sodas, please.
- Some diseases cause dry mouth. Do you have any other symptoms?
- Are your teeth in good condition? The reason I'm asking is dry mouth can cause tooth and gum problems.
I have a few recommendations...
- Brand name mouth products - Biotene. You can buy it almost anywhere in toothpaste department. They also have a swish-and-swallow gargle.
There is a spray solution which I found really helps especially when you are socializing.
- Chewing a piece of sugar less gum seems to increase the amount of saliva.
- I laughed when you mentioned a sip of water while walking. Try an ice cube. Don't chew (bad for teeth) just suck on it while you walk.
