Dehydration?: Not eating right, drinking alcohol instead of taking in hydrating fluids, & maybe lots of vigorous dancing & activities may have left you dehydrated. Signs to watch for, aside from just dry mouth, may include (in no order of importance): little or no urine, or urine that is darker than usual sleepiness or fatigue extreme thirst headache confusion feeling dizzy or lightheaded no tears when crying.

Dehydration: A lot of alcohol combined with high carb, salty foods will cause you to become very dehydrated causing your dry mouth. Drink plenty of water today and you will be fine.
