Causes of Dry Mouth

Dry Mouth is a common side effect of many prescription and non-prescription drugs. Check the leaflet that comes with your medicine or find it in the Medicines A-Z to see if dry mouth is listed as a side effect.

Dry mouth can also occur as a result of:

  • Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy to the head and neck
  • Sjögren's syndrome
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Stroke or Parkinson's disease
  • Alzheimer's disease
  • Nerve damage
  • Diabetes
  • HIV/AIDS

In these cases saliva substitutes are most commonly used to provide patients with relief. Less severe cases of dry mouth may also be caused by:

  • Breathing through the mouth
  • Anxiety
