Mouth Dryness


#1

I just recently started using a CPAP machine. I love it, but there is one drawback. My mouth gets so very dry and it becomes terribly uncomfortable. Any suggestions on how to avoid this? Keeping my mouth closed is the obvious answer, but so far has been a hard habit to break. Thanks so much!

Try using something like Biotene Rinse before you go to bed. It helps me - I’m not a mouth breather but I also get dry mouth.
