Question about a med./weird side effect?

I've been on Seroquel for about 2 years now. Its an anti-psychotic for bi-polar....

anyways, one of the symptoms is dry mouth. In the morning I wake up with severe dry mouth and this gunk thats in my mouth and on my teeth. Its weird, and usually I'm hacking stuff up in the morning cause of it (& I don't smoke). It all started when I started taking this medication.

Its really nasty, but I don't want to be taken off this medication because it helps me sleep since I suffer from really bad insomia. But I can't stand waking up in the morning with this stuff on my teeth.

Re: Question about a med./weird side effect?

That is a very VERY common side effect of Seroquel. I was on it for a while and had the same problem. The Seroquel is causing your mouth to dry out and you will need to take very special care of your teeth to make sure they dont just start to decay. Frequent flossing, brushing and mouthwash are all good ideas, but please make sure you do something! I didnt find out until it was too late, and I now need 3 teeth pulls and have multiple cavities in 11 other teeth. (I had perfect teeth until these meds!!)

Do you have a dentist? You should try to talk to him/her about what steps you can take to avoid long term problems, or in the case of a good friend of mine, dentures.

I hope this helped...
