  • Do you take fish oil supplements? That really works for dry eyes - maybe will help with dry mouth?

  • Bioteme. My doc told me about it because I have dry mouth from pregnancy. It is also recommended for my friend with liver failure. (I may have spelled it wrong) Good luck!

  • I live off orange mint lifesavers. My meds make me constantly thirsty. Also, listerine pocket strips or anything that dissolves in your mouth work good too, at least that's what my aunt said while she was going through chemo. They get the saliva moving.
