I once was on a medication that gave me dry mouth also. Hated it. I found out because I went on line and read about all my medications and all their sypmtoms. Try reading up on your medicines and seeing if that is the problem. As a diabetic, diabetes makes you thirsty also. Drink enough water thru the day to stay hydrated and then it should help with that. Actually beats sucking on candy. Candy is a help, but not the cure. Staying hydrated is. good luck with fixing this.

My dr. said it was the combination of my meds and the diabetes. He said he really didn't know what to do about it so I usually suck on hard sugar free candy.

It is probably a combo of both. I suck on sugar free hard candy and chew sugar free gum. It seems to help my dry mouth plus has helped me in not eating all the time.
