Reflux?: If u have acid reflux, mouth may b producing saliva to neutralize reflux in mouth. Can try rx or otc acid blocker (zantac/pepcid/prevacid etc) , not eating before going to bed, elevating head of bed, losing weight (if overweight), avoiding med/food triggers (fatty/fried, acidic, spicy foods). If problem persists, see fp for further evaluation & treatment.
