Drymouth


#1

I have been using a bipap machine since June after a case of afib. My problem is that I keep waking up with severe drymouth. Is a chinstrap the only solution to this?

Try using a gel called sleepQ+ on your lips. The gel is amazing, it retains the lips closed, releases at the touch of the tongue, re-engages again when the mouth is closed and washes off with water. Great reviews on the website www.sleepqplus.com

Ask your doctor about xylimelts they work for me.

Hi my husband suffered badly with a dry mouth when he first started using a machine, they got around the problem by adding a dehumidifier to the unit and it improved his problems a lot
