Re: Anxiety and burning mouth and tongue

I have tried the Biotene mouth wash and I brush my teeth with a natural toothpaste that has baking soda in it. I found that chewing sugarless gum helps a lot but that gets a little old. My doctor increased my xanax to .5mg in the morning and when I take that the burning mouth pretty much goes away. I am pretty sure that the burning mouth is caused by anxiety for me since the xanax helps. I went to my doctor today and he changed my xanax to xanax xr. He said this may work better since I dont get panic attacks and don't need the big dose up front. He said this is also easier to stop taking. I hate taking meds but I will try it because the burning is driving me crazy. Have you tried xanax to see if that helps?
