Does anyone have these symptoms? I take C/L 25/100 every 3 hrs and my dr says these symptoms are not side effects of C/L. I have been tolerating these problems for 3 yrs now. If I'm allergic, can't figure it out
Dry mouth,swollen tongue and burning ... - Parkinson's Movement
I did a google search on burning mouth and PD. This came up first, is it any help?
I sometimes have sudden dry mouth and burning tongue. I've noticed it happening only when the outdoor pollen or mold counts are high (which is happening now in many areas.) So, mine could be due to allergies. Or, mine could also be due to acid reflux, which happens to me mostly when, again, the outdoor pollen or mold counts are high.
Have you tried taking vitamin C? It's helpful for allergies, and some sources say that it may be helpful for PD, too.
Hikoi, thanks yet again for an informative reference.
Having experienced this myself along with some other regulars on the site I can only offer a hypothesis as to its cause.
Si-simary do you take Sinemet or a generic C/L tablet? I ask because I had been taking Sinemet for a few years with no adverse side-effects. For some reason this got changed on one prescription to generic C/L. The description of your mouth & lips arose immediately & stopped when I reverted to Sinemet. After many tests it was decided that I was allergic to the coating on the generic C/L (a sort of pale egg yolk colour). Just a long-shot but it may be worth a change - tablets contain binding agents, bulking agents, chemical buffers & many more substances than just the drug itself.
Yes, your doc is correct not from C/L.
It is the disease itself - PD dries out the GI tract from one end to the other. When your mouth, and particularly tongue, is no longer adequately bathed in saliva this is the result. I take Cevimeline which prompts the saliva flow. Pilocarpine does likewise. I also have a collection of mouth moisturizers, and keep a hard candy lozenge in my mouth.
Problems with my computer. So sorry! Would you mind sending it again.I continue having problems with swollen lips & tingly tongue., along with dry mouth(like eating cotton balls.) This happens every night. I seem to think I'm allergic to C/L. However, these appear at odd times, not just after taking C/L.
