There can be many causes of dry mouth. Did your ENT suggest getting tested for Sjogren's? Sjogren's is an autoimmune disease that attacks the lacrimal and salivary glands and causes dry eyes and/or dry mouth on top of other symptoms maily joint pain and fatigue. The med that ENT wants you to take, is it Evoxac or Salagen? These can cause side effects however sometimes the benefits outweigh.
For dry mouth, its good to keep sugar-free candies to suck on, lemon drops stimulate the salivary glands to produce more saliva. There are OTC mouth sprays that are good, Oasis makes a good one. Have water on hand at all times but take sips as needed instead of drinking a lot as you will be in the bathroom constantly. For dry sinuses, good ol' Ocean Spray I find works really good and you can keep the inside moist with Vaseline.
Hope this helps a little.
