Good information in this article.

Drooling or sialorrhea can occur during sleep. It is often the result of open-mouth posture from CNS depressants intake or sleeping on one's side. Sometimes while sleeping, saliva does not build up at the back of the throat and does not trigger the normal swallow reflex, leading to the condition.

Make a Change. Change your sleeping position. Learn to sleep on your back, so saliva will not pool in the front of your mouth
