Hi, I was having a lot of trouble with dry mouth, dry nose, dry tongue, burning mouth. I had tried everything: hormones, B vitamins, iron, etc. It caused me to have a lot of anxiety and sleepless nights. The only thing that has helped me is potassium. I started taking a potassium supplement of around 600 - 1000 mg. a day. Also, high potassium foods: fruit juices, cantalope, V-8 juice, tomato juice. Once my potassium levels came up, the dry mouth started going away, also acid reflux, and stomach, digestion problems. Hope this helps someone.
Lately I have been waking up at night with a terribly dry mouth. My tongue and the roof of my mouth are even sore from sticking together. Last night I got up and rubbed some coconut oil on the roof of my mouth and that helped. Does anyone know what causes this? Actually I feel like my whole body is parched. My skin and hair are also very dry. I have been running the humidifier but that doesn't seem to help.
Dry Mouth Cured With Vit E Carotene
I couldn't sleep and I would cough because my mouth was so dry. I had to drink water all night. Vit. E and Vitamin A (carotene) has alleviated the symptoms almost completely. My eyes aren't as dry either. Vit E (400) in the dry form is more effective and it enhances the effectiveness of the Vit. A.(25,000) I tried Vit A (carotene) alone and it didn't work. It needs the help of vitamin E. I take it every day.
