Probably not a great long term solution, but earlier I was having a horrible time with it too while we were out running errands. I had a Hersey kiss in my purse. Sucked on I and some saliva returned.

I just drink lots of water!! My lips would stick to my teeth if I was dry. I also chewed lots of sugar free gum. Biotine used to mars gum and stopped

lorelei I use biotene mouth wash and spray. Act mouth drops. Coconut oil helps some. I ALWAYS have water with me. I like to drink lemonade in between all the water. I cut calories by mixing with in sweat tea.

Sometimes Lemon (just to actually suck on a slice of Lemon)can help....the citric acid activities the saliva....helps me sometimes....I know it's not pleasant but it might be worth a try for you

Great recommendations all . .also just massaging the inside of your lower jaw or underneath. . .start at the jaw corner below you ears inside the jawline and move towards your chin. . .if you saliva is thick your dehydrated drink drink drink . . .maybe add a pinch of sea salt and sweeten to help with dehydration

Gargle regularly with 1/2 tsp coarse salt and 1/2 tsp baking soda dissolved in warm water. Also suck sugar-free candy. This has helped me and was recommended by my gp, rheumatologist and dentist

I use artificial saliva, crushed ice, water and to help me sleep through some of it & prevent me drinking too much water (as this leads to frequent visits to the bathroom) I take Kalm herbal tablets.
