Saliva Issue

About 18 months for me. I had a lot of saliva and mucous along with dry mouth. My Covid pulmologist recommended flonase and prescribed a recombinent inhaler. That helped with lung issues and smoothing out mucus and coughing.

The bigger issue I believe is being dehydrated. I just don’t drink enough water and always feel thirsty. Maybe it’s partially the meds. I’m a sucker for energy drinks to keep my energy levels up, but I’m really trying to get to more water and no soft drinks. If you have an Apple Watch, I found mine was a water reminder on it.

What inhaler have you found that helps with mucus? My son has tried every kind of nasal spray, albuterol inhaler and Flovent inhaler and none of that works. He has almost all of the long covid symptoms but the mucus is the worst.
