    Everyone seem to have different reactions to what is available. My mum tried glyco-something-or-other but had a bad reaction to it and is now on Scopoderm - started out on half a patch and is now up to two patches but it isn't working as effectively as they hoped. Next step is to investigate botox!

    Thanks for this thread. My saliva a bit loose. I have been given Scopoderm and the package says its for travel sickness. Some of the side effects sound terryfying. It also says no alcohol. I have two pints on Thursday Friday Saturday night. It says use half patch for 72hrs. I will put it on this Sunday at midday and see how it goes by Wednesday mid day. If saliva improved will look forward to my few beers over the weekend especially for the rugby.

    Hi if you are getting a dry mouth then I have some tiny tablets from GP called SST relief of a dry mouth. Pop one in and allow to dissolve on tongue and it helps. Ann

    Hi Dude, I have just been given the patches to try but was warned they dry mouth somewhat,I started with a half one as advised by my SALT therapist. I have had a couple times in night very dry to almost feeling I am choking. ,sipped a little water to help. I am going to try them for a while to see how I go. By the way the paperwork with them tells you they are for travel sickness, must be similar to kwells do you think? xx. Jan Q.

    Hi mama ducks ..... Il bear that in mind when trying them with dad, do you think maybe it's worthwhile maybe trying a quarter patch and build it up?

    Hi dvd,, il give that a try and see how it goes, good idea taking it off for a bit and waiting until the next one is needed rather than just leaving it on.

    Hi Steve, I'm going to note down those names off stuff and see how it goes then can always come to them if need be.

    I'm guessing everyone is different to what they can and cannot tolerate, side effects etc.. Will need to see how these things go ... Thanks guys ..... Katrina x

    Hi Katrina .. Reading back on some postings some people take kwells ( used for travel sickness ) to dry the saliva so if the patches or drops are not suitable enquire about the kwells .. My friend uses the patches with no side effect but he does not have them on permanently .. When he feels the saliva is not as bad (dried up a bit) and before he gets to dry he stops the patches ...he tries to go as long as possible before he uses another patch .. DVD

    Hi Katrina.
    Mum used these patches for a while and they did work......BUT.......suddenly without warning she dried up totally. As she had no saliva in her mouth she started choking and it frightened her. After that we cut the patch in half and moved it around her neck......the same still happened and it was always sudden dry mouth and choking. As I said they did work but just be aware...especially if you dad is on his own........ There are a few ladies in mums nursing home that use them with no problems. They are about the size of a small round plaster (penny) and skin coloured.
    After telling you all that Mum might just be an anomaly because her mouth dries up with morphine if taken too frequently.

    I suffer from secretions a lot.
