In brief: Depends on the cause

This symptom is very common, and is often seen as a side effect of many types of medication.
Dehydration, radiotherapy involving the salivary glands and several diseases can cause change in saliva consistency and hence a complaint of xerostomia (dry mouth). Sometimes there is no identifiable cause...Certainly see your physician asap!

In brief: See details

First of all you need to determine the cause of the dry mouth.
There are oral lubricants and medications that can help. A cure is less likely.
