Between having anxiety, fibro and Lexapro my mouth is so dry my lips stick to my gums. I have vaseline with me at all times, or chapstick. Most of my teeth are either capped or bridges and I have had to have a couple of root canals done under them because of my receding gums and the decay. When I wake up in the night my mouth is so dry I about choke so I keep a glass of water by the bed. The dentist gave me a sample of a rinse called Oasis that was supposed to help...it's mostly glycerine and it works for maybe an hour. You can buy it in the drug store...might work for you. Yes...I do have unusual decay!

I don't have dry mouth that I know of, only after taking anti-histamines- but I do have tons of bad teeth that I have had to take care of over the past 5 years. Two root canals over the holidays!! I too hate going to the dentist. I get anticipatory anxiety so bad. With everyone's encouragement here and my wonderful dentist I can now go in with just a minimal amount of anxiety.
I posted a while back asking the same question, because I went to the dentist and he could not believe the amount of cavities that I got over a short period of time. He kept asking me what sweets I was eating and I dont eat sweets at all, I am a health nut and I dont even eat fast food! I have dry mouth, and I was wondering if it was sjrodrens syndrome. The only meds I am on is vicodin. I have Lyrica but have not taken it. I am not convinced it works for fibro, or its just a marketing ploy to make money for the pharmeceutical co.
