FDA approved, Oct. 2013, Aquoral® (oxidized glycerol triester) Dry Mouth

SAN ANTONIO, TX (October 22, 2013) – Relief from dry mouth is now just a spray away. Mission Pharmacal Company today announced the launch of Aquoral®, a safe and effective protective oral spray that moistens and lubricates the mouth for up to four hours.


Aquoral: Oxidized glycerol triesters and silicon dioxide (40 mL); contains aspartame, delivers 400 sprays, citrus flavor  (2 sprays per dose= 1 month supply)

Saw this about XyliMelts use at night.
*XyliMelts: Apply 2 discs before bed, 1 on each side of mouth, in lower or upper part of cheek; during the day, use as needed; swallow as it slowly dissolves (the tan, dimpled side will adhere to teeth or gums)

I wonder who we get our Aquoral prescription from; our dentist, our rhuemy or our GP?

Am very much interested in this for myself, and also for my mother, who has had terrible dry mouth since undergoing radiation and chemo. 

Thank you for posting the information.

Per the xylimelts, I put 1 disc on each side of my mouth at bedtime. Mom prefers the OraMoist discs.
