I was dxed with Acid Reflux in my late 20's (now 55). Since a young kid I suffered from heartburn and ate many Tums to help.
I started out taking Zantec and Tagament for a few years (prescrition then) then graduated to Prilosec (prescription) for 15 years. I was taking 2 per day.
For the last 10 years I have been taking Nexium. I take 40mg 2x daily.
Until I was dxed with RAD I never experienced dry mouth.
Since I haven't been on any RAD meds for a few years I don't think it has anything to do with the meds. Since I have taken my other meds at different times I don't think it has anything to do with them.
For me, I think it has something to do with the disease.
However, there are many reasons for dry mouth and what I read is interesting. It would be a good thing to try and see if dry mouth is relieved.
