How to get rid of dry mouth?


Recently finished prescribed steroids following an operation. They gave me very bothersome dry mouth. Water temporarily reduces the sensation of cotton being in my mouth but I haven’t taken the steroids in almost a week.

My mouth hasn’t gotten back to normal yet, other Han saliva substitutes how can I get rid of this

    Glycerine lozenges from a Pharmacist.

    Chewing gum.

    Biotene chewing gum actually helps you to keep making saliva for hours after you use it.

    But any chewing gum will help temporarily.

    There are a few good brands of toothpaste made specifically to help alleviate dry mouth. Act makes a good one, and Biotene is another good one.
