We are trying to tackle a new issue that has come up for my hwp. Drooling. He just stands over the sink and the drool just chains out of his mouth pretty much all day long. His Neuro said her patients have tried everything to no avail. She is recommending botox injections into the salivary glands on either side of his cheeks.
Does anyone have any other successful suggestions? I appreciate all of you so much. We are in this together!!
Botox injections gave me terrible dry mouth and caused a bad taste in my mouth. High Dose Thiamine (HDT) helped drooling some, but did not eliminate for me.
I'm thinking that my husband would prefer the dry mouth over the other! He practically chokes on his saliva. I also just read that sucking on drops or chewing gum can help so we are trying that. Also there is a drug that can help... whoopee another pill to take! Man or man this is tough. Thank you for your reply back. You never know what someone may have come across. Blessings to you.
