03/15/09 - My friend is being treated for base-tongue cancer. He started radiation and chemo last week. He received a prescripton for Caphosol, to be used 4 to 10 times per day. The first day he tried it, he got sick to his stomach and has been unable to use it since. He says he gags just thinking about it. The risk of dry mouth is extreme and I understand the Caphosol is supposed to be the first step in pain management for the mouth sores.
Does anyone know if he can mix this with Biotene or something with a masking flavor so he can use this medicine? Are there alternatives?
