Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 days ago):
I have had a dry mouth on and off for 3 years and it seemed to start after I had a wisdom tooth removed. I was told by Birmingham dental hospital that omeprazole was the cause and to stop taking it. I changed to esomeprazole and it went away for a while but returned in November 2014. Sometimes it is very severe, sometimes tolerable but always there. My tongue and lips sometimes feel serated. It is worse during the night and first thing in the morning. Tried chewing sugar free gum but it only makes my tongue sore.
From this study (1 week ago):
Believed to be caused by Seroquel 300m daily
From this study (3 weeks ago):
My blood pressure is still up. I started taking 2 losartan a day a little over a week ago. Was not having symptoms as bad when taking only 1. Blood pressure seems to come down some with the clonidine. I think the extra losartan has triggered a reaction.
