In fact, there are up to four hundred medications that can contribute to dry mouth. These drugs include antihistamines, decongestants, painkillers, muscle relaxants, tranquilizers, diuretics, antidepressants, and drugs that treat high blood pressure, Parkinson's disease, and incontinence. Anti-seizure medications, immunosuppressant drugs, and channel calcium blockers may also cause "gingival overgrowth" (enlarged gum tissue). It is important to identify any medication that causes dry mouth and adjust the dosage or replace it with another drug before it leads to severe tooth decay and gum disease.
