    I am on day 2, and woke up with a really dry mouth, have had 1 500ml bottle of water already, but no matter how much i drink, i cant get rid of the dryness, is this normal? i know the more water you drink is better, but already im feeling bloated with drinking it so quick, but its not helping my dry mouth, any suggestions?

    chewing gum isnt recommended...so i now carry around with me a breath freshener and tooth brush and toothpaste....i'm on week 6 and the dryness is still with me, but then i'm a smoker as well so that might make it worse.
    Instead of glugging the water down, try to have sips more frequently to see if that helps.
    I usually end up drinking about 4/5l a day for various reasons but my weight losses have been really good so i dont mind doing it now.
    Hope it sorts itself out soon hun!

    I'm suffereing with a really dry mouth too. I've been chewing gum quite a lot. Not that fond of gum but just for a few minutes helps and i'm worried about bad breath.
    BelleYid, glad to hear lots of water is helping weight loss i'm trying to get through about 5 litres a day just now.

    Get the listerine strips. They are fab and allowed. if you are in ketosis it is unlikely that your dry/bad breath will go away. It is a side affect of every low carb diet, not jut CD. good luck

    I siffered really bad dry mouth for 4-5 weeks, All I did was drink more water. My mouth was so dry that I had the constant feeling of a hair in my mouth day and night then one morning I woke up and it had gone. I'm just starting my 8th week now.

    Hi, I had a dry mouth for the first 2 weeks, really more a dry tongue. I used to call it carpet tongue because it felt like I had been licking a carpet (not that I have ever licked a carpet lol) for it to get that dry and furry. I too like the lady above woke up one morning to find it had gone which was much to my relief. I still occasionally get a bit of a dry tongue but nothing like those first weeks. Hope it goes soon. Zoe xx

    Sucking ice cubes can bring temporary relief...but the coated tongue and dryness does pass eventually. x x

    I have also been suffering with the hair in the mouth feeling. I only seem to get it late in the day, and when I go to bed, it often makes me cough as if there reallly is hair in there! I guess it just goes with the territory.

    hi there, the waking up with a super dry mouth lasted 3 and a half weeks with me, now its fine. I do carry around Boots dry mouth spray - they do it next to the tooth pastes and breath fresheners, few squirts and it helps - not loads but a bit - it also has breath freshener in as well so helps with the bad breath cd leaves you with as well
