rubray, the thick saliva is big problem. I have LSU sucker Lamdal Sucker Unit which I use before eating and before clean mouth before taking Carbocisteine and eye drops. I also have a Clearway unit blowing through mouth and nose. Also got Riluzole tablets and Lansoprazole tablet.
I coming up six years since formally diagnosed with MND. Mine is all down left side luckily still use computer and drive my wheelchair and use sit stand hoist get me in out bed but cannot talk. Have had peg fitted but only use a bit as if food mashed up still manage to swallow
Best wishes John
