CPAP & Dry Mouth

In recent months, I have developed extreme dry mouth as a result of the CPAP.  I am a mouth breather when using CPAP.Recently, I saw an advertisement for the symptoms of dry mouth, but as usual, when I need the information to have a discussion with both my primary care  physician and my dentist I haven't seen the ad. Has anyone else seen the ad and can anyone remember the info in the ad?Thanks in advance,DanSee More

Hi Ms. Carol - I just round and read your welcome letter!  Sorry for my, very delayed response.  I love this site and will continue to use for my own education as well as refer people to for education.  I am happy that I found "sleepguide.com" and welcome the opportunity to help and support others with sleep apnea.

Thank you again for your kind welcome!

Karen
