Pristiq Dry Mouth Causes and Reviews


Dry mouth is the feeling that there is not enough saliva in your mouth. Everyone has a dry mouth once in a while - if they are nervous, upset or under stress. But if you have a dry mouth all or most of the time, it can be uncomfortable and can lead to serious health problems.

Symptoms of dry mouth include

  • A sticky, dry feeling in the mouth
  • Trouble chewing, swallowing, tasting, or speaking
  • A burning feeling in the mouth
  • A dry feeling in the throat
  • Cracked lips
  • A dry, rough tongue
  • Mouth sores
  • An infection in the mouth

Dry mouth is not a normal part of aging. Causes include some medicines, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and nerve damage. Salivary gland diseases, Sjogren's syndrome, HIV/AIDS, and diabetes can also cause dry mouth. Treatment depends on the cause. Things you can do include sipping water, avoiding drinks with caffeine, tobacco, and alcohol, and chewing sugarless gum or sucking on sugarless hard candy.

Tue, 29 Jun 2010
I took wellbutrin two yrs ago and developed symptome of GERD, inability to swallow comfortably, abdominal pain. Took thousands of dollars of tests and was told it was not the medication, it was merely a coincidence. Fast forward to last month when I began taking a similar med - Pristiq. It took three weeks but the swallowing problem, throat clearing and stomach pain have all returned. Saw my psychiatrist and moved back to Effexor. It's sad we did not know about this before all that I had to deal with.

I am a 42 year old female who was started on 50 mg. once a day Pristiq for depression. It has been 4 days and I have lower abdominal pain everyday all day and night. I have been taking Tylenol for the pain around the clock. I also can't sleep much. I wake up everyday at 2am. I will see if these symptoms go away but I don't know if I can tolerate the pain. I sweat alot too, but that I can deal with
