I am sorry you are drooling.

do you parkinsons disease? I see you are taking levadopa?

did you have a deep brain stimulating surgery operation?

did you start to drool after that?

have you tried atropine drops in your mouth to have dry out your mouth?

there are some medications which can help dry your mouth to decrease saliva production.
