Talk to sleep doctor: Those symptoms may indicate some type of sleep disordered breathing such as apnea or upper airway resistance syndrome. A consult with a sleep physician would be a good place to start.

See your PCP: There are many causes of dry mouth (xerostomia) including: mouth breathing, OSA, certain medications, lifestyle (smoking) and systemic illnesses (diabetes). Some causes are easily correctable, others are more difficult to treat. Taking good history may be helpful to find the cause and can be of significant value when treating dry mouth symptoms
