My wife suffers from a dry mouth. Drinking water and chewing gum do not help much.
She uses esperide, enap5, purata and adco-zolpiden. Could any of these be the culprit?.
Can you advise.

Hello, Jan! How are you?

Any and all of them could be the culprit. Dry mouth is very common with most medications. When I had that problem, I found that sucking on sugarless sour candy usually helped.

Otherwise, there really isn't much to be done about it, other than keep her mouth moist. Taking small sips of water or even lemon water frequently can help, along with the candy and mints.

Does anyone else have any ideas to add?

Most people get that from meds. I use the mouth wash (Biotene?). I found a way to use that mixed with a little silicone (drug stores sell it) & water. Use a small atomizer to spray into your mouth. Adjust it, as I have no "formula". It works and I take it with me.
