Less dry mouth and increased salivary flow were twice as likely after taking pilocarpine than after a dummy pill (...) . Dry mouth from radiotherapy impairs quality of life. Although people can try simple measures at home, such as sucking ice cubes, they may wish to discuss pilocarpine treatment with their GP. Side effects from this medication are usually short-lived but if they are troublesome other options are available, though not supported by such good evidence as pilocarpine.

3. Pharmacological interventions for preventing dry mouth and salivary gland dysfunction following radiotherapy. (PubMed)

Pharmacological interventions for preventing dry mouth and salivary gland dysfunction following radiotherapy. Salivary gland dysfunction is an 'umbrella' term for the presence of either xerostomia (subjective sensation of dryness), or salivary gland hypofunction (reduction in saliva production). It is a predictable side effect of radiotherapy to the head and neck region, and is associated with a significant impairment of quality of life. A wide range of pharmacological interventions (...) , antiseptic mouthrinse, antimicrobial lozenge, polaprezinc, azulene rinse, and Venalot Depot (coumarin plus troxerutin).There is some low-quality evidence to suggest that amifostine prevents the feeling of dry mouth in people receiving radiotherapy to the head and neck (with or without chemotherapy) in the short- (end of radiotherapy) to medium-term (three months postradiotherapy). However, it is less clear whether or not this effect is sustained to 12 months postradiotherapy. The benefits of amifostine

In particular, the article by Moore/2001 addresses the possibility that xerostomia in diabetics may be due to correlative issues relating to consumption of prescription drugs as opposed to diabetes being a direct cause of dry mouth symptoms.

Interventions for the management of dry mouth: non-pharmacological interventions. Xerostomia is the subjective sensation of dry mouth. Common causes of xerostomia include adverse effects of many commonly prescribed medications, disease (e.g. Sjogren's Syndrome) and radiotherapy treatment for head and neck cancers. Non-pharmacological techniques such as acupuncture or mild electrostimulation may be used to improve symptoms.To assess the effects of non-pharmacological interventions administered (...)
