Dry mouth/congestion: Best to get eval by Dr., as it sounds like your nasal mucus and congestion is causing you to breath through your mouth while sleeping, thus causing your dry mouth in the morning. A RX corticosteroid nasal spray can help open up your nasal passages and improve your congestion and mucus issues, etc. See the Doctor, best wishes.
