Remedy Description

Source: "Ask the Doctor", Dr. Peter Gott, Newspaper Collumnist, June 5th, 2008

Dr. Gott: Try sugar-free drops for dry mouth

Dear Dr. Gott: I recently read your letter about the reader who uses a Tic Tac for

nighttime dry mouth. I use Halls Sugar Free cough drops because I am diabetic.

Please put this tip in your column for others to use.

Dear Reader: Several people wrote to me regarding dry mouth and their solutions for the issue.

One indicated she spoke with her dental hygienist regarding the sugar content. The reader

then wrote to the manufacturer and recommended they make a sugar-free version. She received

a polite note thanking her for her letter and a coupon for a free package of Tic Tacs

(which wasn't what she was looking for), but in the meantime found sugar-free Altoids

work even better. The only problem is that they dissolve more rapidly than Tic Tacs.

Now I have three recommendations to share with readers. Thank you for writing.
