No, I don't think it's serious. They are just annoying....very very very annoying!
I get them when I was younger if I ate a lot of salty stuff, like sunflower seeds or pickles. So I think it may have something to do with the salt compound in the medicine. I've almost got it down to a day where they are really "active" if I hold some hydrogen peroxide on it for about 30 seconds and then swish with Listerine and hold some on there after with a qtip.
As for the dry mouth, I'm ALWAYS sipping on water, but I have been using the Biotene mouthwash and that seems to give some temporary relief.
