In brief: Biotene

Many medications make the mouth dry.
Use biotene during these times (www.Biotene.Com).

I did not place a picture with my answer, and have no idea where that above dispalyed picture came from - it certainly is not Biotene. I have a list of several hundred medications that make the mouth dry and have found that Biotene helps these patients greatly.

In brief: Pamelor (nortriptyline)

Talk to your doctor about possibly trying desipramine (norpramine) which has less drying effect.
