Provigil, Mouth Sores Why Do Certain Psych Medication Cause Dry Cotton Mouth?

Why do certain psych medication cause dry cotton mouth? - provigil, mouth sores

Psych take two tablets per day. Effexor XR (high dose) for depression, anxiety and Provigil (which is not really Psych Med, but it is prescribed off-label) successfully for the symptoms of ADD. I think I need a water bottle-style rifle, tied me 24 / 7. They say that people 64 liters of water a day --- it must be forgotten. Throughout the day, every day, I am like a desert. It also affects the way they talk about when they stick back, and my tongue in her mouth. Every doctor, there is to know what mechanism causes such as cotton mouth? I really need any advice - but I am looking for the source of the problem. Thank you.

  1. Dry mouth or xerostomia, leading to reduced secretion of saliva. More than two medications to claim 250 xerostomia as a side effect. Medications that produce xerostomia as a side effect of anticholinergics, antidepressants, anti-Parkinson drugs, antihistamines / decongestants, Urinary antispasmodics, neuroleptics, diuretics, hypnotics, systemic bronchodilators, muscle relaxants, reserpine, methyldopa, laxatives, beta-blockers, narcotics, and guanabenz clonidine.
    Try flavored lemon sucking candy, eat more often (eat more saliva production), and chewing gum, but if it really bothers you, you can see your doctor about this, they can also cause tooth decay.
