Dry Mouth

Dry Mouth

For anyone on here who suffers from dry mouth, dry lips, burning mouth syndrome, or Sjogren’s syndrome. Is there anything that you eat or drink or anything that you do that you feel make your mouth feel worse,

Biotene didn't work as well for me as Act for Dry Mouth (and unlike Biotene--it's got flouride. And since I have sjogerns I have alot of dental problems, that's a plus. Also it doesn't burn like alot of mouthwashes. Sugarless gum is a plus as are sugarless candies--anything that will keep your own saliva flowing.

I have Sjogren’s syndrome. My Rheumatologist diagnosed me by blood test. He recommended Biotene products (toothpaste and mouth rinse). I have used the gum as well. Not a fan of these products. So I asked my dentist.

My dentist recommended OraCoat Xylimelts for dry mouth. He gave me samples. They are little long-lasting adhering discs that you place along your gum line for use while you sleep and during the daytime. They are rated most effective by Dentists. They coat, moisturize and lubricate your mouth. They stimulate production of saliva, reduce sleep disruption caused by dry mouth, reduce plaque and reduce tooth decay and freshen breath. They are non-acidic pH 8.1. They are All-Natural.You can purchase it a Walmart, CVS Pharmacy, Rite-Aid Pharmacy or on Amazon.com.

It is a generic from CVS pharmacy. Look for it in mouthwash area. Other stores have it too. There is a brand name, but I dont remember the name. One is as good as the other. Really helps in middle of night when I wake up dry to have it under my pillow.
It is just a small pump spray bottle. Costs about $7.00
Hope it helps. It does not cure, but relieves symptoms for awhile.

My dry mouth is worse when I take a dose of tramadol, antihistimine, or anti-nauseant . I have a dry mouth spray I use during night when I wake up dry and don't wanna get up for water. During day, I try to keep well-hydrated.
