Just FYI – no one researched dry mouth until the AIDS pandemic. The original meds used for AIDS caused such bad dry mouth people couldn’t swallow liquids, it “stuck” in the mouth.
So, Pdcali50 odds are there wasn’t a good Rx available when you started the nightmare of dry mouth.
Wadi2u, maybe speak to your regular doctor about dry mouth prescriptions. These include pilocarpine (Salagen) or cevimeline (Evoxac) both of these stimulate saliva production. I don’t know how easy they are to get in terms of doctors prescribing them and I don’t know insurance coverage (USA). You may want to call your insurance first and see if you need prior auth or something. Make sure you’ve tried OTC products and failed, if you need a prior auth that’s going to be one of the first questions – what else has the patient attempted? Has the patient used OTC?
