Sudden onset of dry mouth with not much saliva & dizziness. Had 3 episodes of this over a few months, in the morning before eating breakfast. Any idea?

In brief: Lots of factors

Dry mouth or xerostomia can be caused by a range of different things.
One of the most common is drug side effect. In your case, Remeron (mirtazapine) has been known to cause dry mouth. Since you have noticed this several times, be certain to report this to the physician who prescribed it. Further, be sure to visit you dentist every 3-6 months to monitor xerostomia's effect on your teeth and gums.

In brief: Are you on

Any medications. Many meds have the side effect of dry mouth.
Perhaps best to see a dentist for an evaluation as well. If dentally unrelated, would recommend a visit to your physician. In the interim try the biotene oral care system. Hope this helps.
