Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Dry mouth or Xerostomia
can occur due to a number of causes and the medicines that you are taking (that is Wellbutrin
and Adderall) both can cause dry mouth.
Other common causes of dry mouth can be severe dehydration
, salivary gland
dysfunction, nerve damage
supplying salivary glands, oral infections like thrush, Sjogren syndrome, etcetera.
You should consult your Physician and get yourself checked and the medicine doses can be titrated accordingly.
-For dry mouth, chew sugarfree chewing gums.
-Drink plenty of water.
-Avoid regular mouthwash and use specialized mouthwash like Biotene that is formulated for dry mouth.
-You can also instil artificial saliva drops.
-Suck tart candies like Lemon drops as it also stimulates saliva flow.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
