Are Your Prescriptions Causing Dry Mouth? Here’s How to Know and What to do About It.
When it comes to our health, it should be our right to have it all. We shouldn’t have to choose between keeping our lungs healthy or our heart healthy. Between having strong legs or a sharp mind. But for those of us on prescription medications, this is not the reality.
Because of the side effects of many prescription drugs, we are forced to choose to keep one part of our bodies healthy at the expense of another. We suffer the side effects of our prescriptions, knowing it’s better to choose partial health over no health at all.
One of the most common side effects of prescription medications is dry mouth.
We know of over 400 medications that cause it. Everything from antidepressants to antihistamines to beta-blockers. This is because many medications have an antiadrenergic or anticholinergic effect, which blocks the parts of your body that promote saliva production from the glands, and other gland production.
For example, Benadryl dries up your sinuses, so you don’t have a runny nose anymore, but at the same time, it can dry up your saliva glands. This is why you might experience some dry mouth when taking Benadryl.
Benadryl is a mild example. Stronger prescription medications, like those taken by patients who are undergoing radiation or chemotherapy, can cause a greater amount of dry mouth and, therefore, a greater amount of discomfort.
If you’re suffering from dry mouth and you take prescription drugs, one of your medications could be the culprit.

Chances are, you saw at least one of your medications on that list. If you are on multiple medications, this could be heightening the level of dry mouth or the frequency that you experience it.
So now what? What can you do?
You don’t want to stop taking your medication. It’s working, and it’s making at least one part of your body feel better. But dry mouth—feeling thirsty all the time, cracked lips, bad breath, problems speaking—it’s almost unbearable. We know.
What if you didn’t have to choose between your medication and the unfortunate side effect of dry mouth?
