Has anyone here come up with a good concoction of allergy meds that doesn't add to the dry mouth we all seem to have.

I am getting my butt kicked by the pollen over here in Oregon.lol

I was given Clarinex pills with Nasonex nose spray and haven't noticed any change in saliva. That was my first worry and I put off filling the script for two months until I couldn't stand it anymore. If you do ask for them, also ask for the discount card.

And actually I am a little surprised it didn't give me dry mouth or hype me up like so many others have. But what works for me may not work for you. It's all trial and error.

Good luck finding the right one.

Well, at least for the last two years. ENT has me on Astepro nasal spray before bedtime, and Nasonex in the morning. So far, it's worked like a charm.

bjw; I noticed in your "stats" that your cancer is similar to mine, that was just diagnosed. I am Stage 1 but a recurrent cancer that I had 1 1/2 yrs ago, with no treatment that time. I am slated for just radiation starting next week. Are you able to eat? Is your trach permanent? Just wondering what I should be looking at? Thanks for any help!!!

Welcome to the group. If you would create a brand new thread, introducing your situation and asking whatever questions are pressing you right now, more people will notice you and you will get much better answers. I've read your information, and I have to say, you are likely one very lucky person. You have a very early diagnosis, and are likely to get great results from treatment. That is not saying your treatment will be fun, because it won't. Like the rest of us that have been through radiation, there are side effects, and those side-effects can be pretty bothersome for awhile. To comment on your initial questions, eating will likely be affected, at least for awhile, by your radiation. And your speech will be affected, as the radiation will have a definite effect on your vocal cords. These are certainly things that you will want to talk about, and many here can give you some good advice.

Welcome to the group, again. Keep coming back.
