This is Dr. David

have you tried the prescription medication Salagen? this can help improve dry mouth.

if you have dry mouth and dry eyes, you could have sjogren's syndrome which is an autoimmune condition which can cause dry mouth and dry eyes and dry nose.

there are treatments for Sjorgren's syndrome.

let me know if you have other questions.
