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?

I have the yuckiest taste in my mouth this morning :S - I'm on day 5 now. Have you tried chewing gum for a few mins??

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.

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
