Dry mouth, throat, raspy unclear voice

Has anyone here tried biotene toothpaste / oral rinse for dry mouth/throat? Some mornings, my voice is ok and other mornings, it is almost impossible for me to talk sometimes. I have a bad anxiety disorder (panic/GAD) and psychiatrists and psychologists have told me muscle tension is the culprit for some of this but I notice that I wake up in the mornings with a dry tongue and throat and this really makes my hoarseness a lot worse. Has anyone here used biotene with good results from all the dryness? Thanks in advance for any replies or possible suggestions.

Re: Dry mouth, throat, raspy unclear voice

Hi, I have not tried the two items you mention but I have used Biotene Gel Spray for Dry Mouth.
I tend to breathe through my mouth at night and my mouth gets very dry.
It helps for a time but if I wake up I have to use it again. It may work better if I used the Toothpaste and Mouthwash as well.

Thanks solofelix. Do you have any trouble with hoarseness or just the dry mouth?

Because I suffer with AR/GERD, I get both dry/sore throat and
hoarsness. I am forever clearing my throat.
I also suffer Post Nasal Drip which makes me both dry and hoarse.

Re: Dry mouth, throat, raspy unclear voice

You said AR/Gerd. I know what GERD is. What is AR? Are you hoarse sometimes or all the time? Is your voice sometimes clear and other times not so clear?
