Cipralex is amazing with me! The only side effect is mouth dryness. It causes me a trouble especially when I fast( I do not eat nor drink for certain hours, for religious purposes). How to cope?

Hi, @aliali – You may notice that I moved your message and combined it with this existing discussion, "Lexapro," as I thought it would be beneficial for you to connect with many members with experience with this medication who may be able to share their insights.

Glad the cipralex (Lexapro) is working for you. That is challenging to have a dry mouth from the medication, however. Hoping other members like @stsopoci @lee00 @mommabird74 @lioness will have some ideas for you on dealing with this.

If you haven't already, @aliali, you might check out this Connect thread for general thoughts and tips on dealing with dry mouth https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/dry-mouth-2/

Have you found any remedies that bring even slight relief, @aliali?
