Dry mouth & throat

Recommended Posts

Hello gang, after undergoing 4 rounds of Keytruda & chemo (tumor shrunk) and now doing Keytruda maintenance my wife has developed dry mouth & throat. She has been using Biotene and licking honey off the spoon for relief, have any of you undergoing treatment had the same side effect of dry mouth & throat? If you did what did you do for relief? She doesn't like tea so that's out.

Robert,

In addition to Biotene mouthwash, have her buy Spry peppermints. These are sugar free and worked for me. You may find them appropriately priced on line. 

Stay the course.

I have had dry mouth for quite sometime. Lots of sipping water. ACT is a great product. I use the dry mouth rinse and they have dry mouth lozenges as well. I always have either water or a lozenge in my mouth Always

Also talk to your dentist. High chances of cavities. My dentist gave me a prescription toothpaste to use at night 

i have gotten used to it  Also keep your lips moist  Carmex was recommended to me

Good luck!
