In brief: Not likely

Dry mouth is not a documented side effect of iron supplementation.
Most people do not need extra iron unless prescribed by a physician. Is your doctor telling you to take iron?

In brief: Not likely

Dry mouth can be caused by taking some medications but iron supplements is not one of them. If you have dry mouth then there could be some other reason.
