  • Dry mouth

    I was diagnosed in 2007 and since then I have been on all kinds of medications for IC. My current medications are Elavil,Atarax,Neurotoin,Elmiron and tramacet for pain. My problem is dry mouth and a burning sensation when I brush my teeth with regular toothpaste ,even sensodine hurts so much . I don't undestand why and does it happen to other people too? is this caused by the medications I take ? I discovered a toothpaste called Biotene which has helped a lot but is very expensive ..... any other ideas will be appreciated thanks!!!

    Evoxac and Salagen

    There are two medications you can take for dry mouth - Evoxac and Salagen. I take Evoxac. It works great, and I don't have any side effects from it. I take it 3 times per day.

    Not a good idea to have a dry mouth. It will rot your teeth.

    Hope this information is helpful to you.

        Dear Loren -

        Both of the medications are by prescription. I don't know if they are available in Canada. I would call your pharmacy and see. If not, you probably can get them from a pharmacy in the USA.

        Good luck. Let me know if you need any more help or information.
