Dry mouth remedies
I have dry mouth due to a medication I am on. After several tries to find something for relief, I found that sour candies work for me as they stir up the saliva. Perhaps that might work for you?

I hope the sour Candy is sugar free.
Too much sugar in your mouth is not healthy.
I went to Walmart today, and learned a few things. Act lozenges have carnival wax in them the same as paraben in biotene. So it’s really 6 of one and half dozen of other.
Both products are basically the same.
chewing gum and water could be the lesser of the 2 evils.
The pharmacist in Walmart said the sprays are good, as they sell the most sprays over everything else, but that could be just the area.
As you know carnuba wax is what they use on cars.
I did find an alcohol free product call Toms of Maine. Don’t know much about it.
Hope the little info. Is a help.
