    Going backwards

    As I return to the cot, sadly without my dear mum, dribble is king. Does anyone have any good ideas to combat the effect? I'm not talking drugs as there is only really one that I take! 🤔😊

    Short of sticking a loo roll in your mouth, the only sure way I'm aware off to reduce saliva production is by taking specific meds, I'm afraid.

    I take glycopyrronium but hyoscine, atropine and amitriptyline are also prescribed, and having Botox injections into the salivary glands works well too.

    I know of natural remedies to thin secretions but not of stopping them - hopefully other people do and will share.

    Botox of any interest??

        Came across this post from June. You have probably solved this by now Matthew but in case you haven’t. My wife had the same problem and was prescribed travel sickness patches which worked. It so was so efficient that I had to cut the patch in half to prevent drying her mouth up completely. You apply the patch behind your ear. If you are interested I’ll dig out the brand name.

          Thank you for your suggestions, I have those patches and once I tried two at once, never again! Oh and the juice is a nice idea but most of it would be on my shirt! 😀
