  • Biotene Dry Mouth Remedy not for me - want it?

    Hey out there! I'm on Enablex and working in live radio.. enough said?

    I've been using OASIS dry mouth spray made by GlaxoSmithKline, but couldn't find it when I ran out yesterday.

    So I purchased BIOTENE Oral Balance dry mouth moisturizer made by Laclede, Inc. It doesn't spray...just drops on your tongue and claims to last 3 hours.

    Anyway, let this be a warning to everyone: DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! It tastes absolutely terrible. There's a chemical-type flavor and a really WEIRD texture to it. It creates a 'film' that's just as bad as dry mouth!

    Oh well.

    Hey - has anybody out there been able to afford Aquoral? My co-pay AFTER insurance was nearly $100! I tried it once at the urologist's office, though. Good stuff.

    Have you tried the Tom's brand mouth rinse at all? All the Tom's is all natural.

    Just a thought
