Brief Answer: Hello, I would be happy to help... Detailed Answer: Spiriva commonly causes dry mouth (also called xerostomia) at a rate of about 10% of patients. Teva-Ramipril, a different drug in a different class, does not cause significant dry-mouth. Its most common side effect is a cough (occurs in up to 10% of patients) I hope that this helps and good luck!
