Help! I have gone from excessive spitting of mucous at night to now being awoken by a severely dry mouth. I read old posts on the topic that recommended certain products. I have the Biotene toothpaste but no other dry mouth products.
Does anyone have any specific ideas of how to address the dry mouth problem during sleep? Would a vaporizer work, or cause problems with its moisture?

Hi Danny, I drink water late a night and find it helps a lot. Don't know about a vaborrizer.
