Brief answer....given below
Thanks for the query.
Having a dry mouth
in the night can be caused by various factors which can include use of medicines like diuretics for hypertension
,use of drugs like XANAX,use of pain killers,inadequate hydration,use of tobacco and smoking,mouth breathing
in night,diseases like diabetes,anaemia,Alzheimer's and hypertension in itself,dry air in bedroom either because of wintry conditions or use of heater in the room etc.
Sometimes the use of SYNTHROID
can also cause dryness of mouth in night specially in people above the age of 60 years.
I would want you to talk to your doctor and try to identify the exact cause behind your problem.
In the mean time you can try to increase your water intake in the daytime and use a humidifier in the room.Gradually try to reduce your dependence on drugs like XANAX by gradually reducing the dose of it under the guidance of your doctor.Make sure that you don't quit XANAX cold XXXXXXX as it can lead to severe withdrawal symptoms
I hope it helps you however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
