A short course antisalivation drugs will help

Detailed Answer:
Hello Sir

I can certainly understand your concern

Hypersalivation can be secondary to recovery from Infection or antibiotic therapy.

This isn't a major problem Sir

You will gradually recover in the due course.

I generally prescribe oral medications of Tab Glycopyrrolate 1 mg 1 to 2 times a day for 3 to 5 days to my patients with similar symptoms.

Please check with your physician if he/she shares my opinion and if can prescribe these medications to you.
