Treatments and drugs

By Mayo Clinic Staff

If your doctor believes medication to be the cause, he or she may adjust your dosage or switch you to another medication that doesn't cause a dry mouth. Your doctor may also consider prescribing pilocarpine (Salagen) or cevimeline (Evoxac) to stimulate saliva production.

In severe cases, to prevent cavities, your dentist might fit you for coverings for your teeth filled with fluoride to wear at night.
