Has anybody experienced a very dry mouth while on Prednisone or when tapering?  I just finished tapering last week and seem to have a really dry mouth.  Nothing I do seems to help it.   Any suggestions?

Biotene makes a line of products for dry mouth - toothpaste and mouthwash. They're very soothing, and you can get them at most pharmacies. Not expensive, either
