I check on this every few days and the Coming Soon page has been up again lately.

Brian, I would definitely buy from the OCF store if it was made available. Thanks for doing this.
You mentioned above that this product is good for regular people with dry mouth too, and I happen to know a few who have dry mouth from medications they are taking. I've been spreading the word.

Just slightly, but nor really off topic if I may. Today I had my weekly meeting with my RO's nurse. We got talking about what I was using for my mouth and I told I had used the Ulcereaze I had been given one day.

I then told her that I had begun using several of the Biotene products, specifically the toothpaste, mouthwash and gum. I told her that all of them were great products, in my limited usage. She had not heard of them.

She told me that she was going to go to the site and get all the information she could to present to the RO this afternoon!! She mentioned that just maybe they could get the product in and give it to patients!!! smile

Spread the word!!!!!

Hi guys,

Just yesterday I went to my local drug store (not part of a chain) and found that they had this new Biotene product on their shelf so be aware that it's now available in some stores. I did purchase a bottle and was under the impression that it came in a spray bottle. Turns out that at least the one I picked up was in a squirt-type bottle. Since I really need a spray I found that I had a small spray applicator top at home, tried it on the bottle and it fit! So far it seems to be a very good, and welcome addition to my arsenol of mouth spray.

I've tried to make a point of telling my various doctors and nurses about Biotene. However, I may have made a tactical error in the way I approached it with my hygienist. I pointed out to her that since I've been using Biotene products, I've found that plaque takes longer to build up on my teeth, so I can take a bit longer between cleanings (I was going every 2 months, now it's every 3).

Good news for me, not so good for my dentist(!?)

We finally found this new Biotene dry mouth spray product at our local Walgreens store and bought a few bottles today. My husband tried it and seems to like it pretty well.

I like the liquid and just squirt some on my tongue. I can then rub it around the tissues in my mouth with my tongue. I'm becoming addicted to the bannana/fruity taste.
