My Mum was diagnosed with Parkinsons in June this year and is on Madopar. The medication is working, as she is shaking less and walking better. Soon after starting the medication she started suffering with very dry mouth. The dry mouth is effecting her everyday life, as some days it is so bad. It has got to the stage of eating very little and what she does eat needs to have no lumps, so have been preparing some pureed veg for her that can be frozen. She has tried everything that we can find including sipping water, chewing gum, hard sweets, Boots mouth spray, xylimelts and Biotene products.
Does anyone have any other advice or medication for dry mouth worth trying? Meals have become very difficult for her, so I am also looking at meals that I can precook and freeze. Any advice is welcome. Thanks
