Oasis Moisturizing Mouth Spray for Dry Mouth Mild Mint -- 1 fl oz
I keep this by my bedside. It's not like the Biotin gel (which I wish Vitacost would carry). Yet, it's very soothing and does moisturize the mouth. Easy to use in the night. A little spritz really is nice!

Wow! Amazing Relief for Dry Mouth
My ENT recommended this for dry mouth due to some medication I was taking. Medication-dry mouth had not only set the climate for a mild bacterial infection in my mouth, but it was seriously interfering with speaking and teaching assignments as well as my sleep. Just 1 or 2 sprays gives immediate and long-lasting relief that continues for at least two hours. Seems to increase salivation, too, but then it may just seem that way because my mouth stays so moist. This product also comes in a smaller, pocket-size portable spray tube, usually available in a two-pack.
There's no bitter taste or aftertaste (at least not for me), and it keeps me from waking up at night with a dry, itchy throat.
Dry mouth can be caused by stress, meds, chemo, normal aging, air conditioning, arid climates, mouth-breathing due to nasal congestion from colds/allergies. Lots of reasons, but it's not just annoying or uncomfortable--the long-term effects can be cavities, bacterial infections of the mouth, tongue, throat, and play a part in receding gums and gum infections. Who knew? All of which is why my ENT reccomeded this as treatment and prevention--along with a moisturizing mouthwash rinse, which I haven't yet tried, but will.
