From this study (4 weeks ago):
Polly Jones on Jun, 3, 2014:
My mouth is so dry that I am not producing saliva. I used to be able to lean over the sink, open my mouth, and saliva would drain from my inner cheek ducts into the sink. I have been using the Amlodipine 4 months. Without proper salivary flow, some vital digestive enzymes are missing, and the teeth don't get remineralized.I have a choice of asking for Salagen, yet another drug, to help with the problem, or stopping the Blood pressure altogether. I can't deal with cotton mouth.
From this study (1 month ago):
Recent diagnosis of SAPHO. Had one transfusion of Pamidronate 3 weeks ago with worsening of pain. Have had palmar plantar pustulosis for over 15 years.

All of the symptoms I listed started after I began taking Ambien. I quit taking it after about 2 months. The symptoms have not gone away after 60 days.
