Dry Mouth

7 messages in this subject.

This may have been covered elsewhere - the majority of the times, before an ulcer fully appears (2-3 days before), I find that a) I wake up mornings with a dry mouth and b) the spot that will eventually become ulcerated tingles - Iím told cold sores do the same, but Iíve never suffered from them. Could there be a link that anyone knows of?
Any

Robin,
Yes you may have somthing, The same thing has happened to me. I donít know about a link because I never get cold sores either. Try ĒacidophilusĒ caps and see if it dosnít help.

Some guff about acidophilus... ĒAcidophilus is a probiotic bacteria. By producing organic compounds, this type of bacteria found in Acidophilus promotes good digestion and increases immune functions by increasing the acidity in the intestine thus increasing resistance to infection.Ē
This ties in rather well with benefits demonstrated by other probiotic products.
Jack, does it have any digestive effects that could be deemed inconvenient (as it is also recommended for constipation) ?

I just broke out with another ulcer on the inside of my lip but the strange thing is I have been fighting a dry mouth for a couple days. Itís pretty nasty. In fact it wakes me up at night even. I suffered pretty bad with dry mouth while taking Paxil for anxiety and thought it was from the medication. It is a common side effect of Paxi, but now I wonder if itís from the ulcer, stress, or what?!?! Any thoughts?

Hmmm, I always thought it was the other way around. I assumed I was sleeping with my mouth open and so my mouth was drying out and leaving the lining less protected, more open to abrasions etc.

Cheers

if you are taking paxil my advice to you is drink water every hour a glass maybe a half of glass that will help with the dry mouth or sometime

I have been using Xylimelts 1 at night and 1 during the day. I have noticed a difference in that my mouth doesn't feel so dry.
My biggest problem with the "Dry Mouth" is a couple of the symptoms ie a thick foamy saliva that catches at the back of my throat that I find very difficult to dislodge and a burning sensation on my tongue. Does anyone have any suggestions to help with this?
