In brief: Dry Mouth

Start by speaking to your physician if if the dosage can be reduced or if there are alternative medications that are less prone to causing dry mouth.
Hydrate (drink water) as much as possible throughout the day. Minimize foods with heavy salt, sugar, acid content. There are many Biotene products designed specifically for dry mouths.
