I know this is a pretty minor matter compared with the issues so many people on this list are dealing with--even compared with some of my *own* other issues! But lately, dry mouth is driving me crazy. I can deal with it okay during the day by drinking water and sucking on sugarless hard candies, though drinking a lot of water can cause me other problems. (Truth is, though, I usually don't drink enough.) The bigger problem lately is at bedtime. I take 200 mg of Neurontin at bedtime and 100 mg in the morning. I understand that Neurontin can cause dry mouth. I also take other medications, including amantadine and Protonix, as well as my once/week Avonex shot for MS. I take a couple of inhalers, too--Flonase and Atrovent--to help with breathing. Some of these others may contribute to the dry mouth. Maybe some of my vitamins, minerals and other supplements may be involved, too. And for the past week or so, I've been taking amoxicillin for swelling along the gum of the tooth that has been giving me problems for the last couple of months--the one that seems most involved in the pain I've had that may or may not be from fibro, CMP or endodontal problems. (My dentist said that if the swelling isn't gone by next Friday, I need to go to an endodontist for a root canal job--something I'm just dreading!) But I digress. Right now, my mouth feels like an army is marching through it in muddy boots! This is getting so bad it kept me from sleeping the other night--as if I need something *else* to keep me from getting quality sleep! If you have experienced a similar problem, how did you deal with it? --Laura R.M.
