In brief: Dry mouth
There are many conditions associated with dry mouth.
It is not a disease, but a symptom of a medical disorder (e.g diabetes) or a side effect of certain medications, such as antihistamines, decongestants, pain killers, diuretics and many others. It could be a single episode and no further treatment is needed.
