Fish oil and Dry mouth/thirst

Curiosity question;
  About a month ago, maybe more, I started 1200mg fish oil 3x/day.  12pm, 5pm, 10pm.  During the night I wake up with an extremely dry mouth the last couple weeks, I keep a glass of water next to the bed and end up drinking 1/2 of that (16oz?) and that at least helps.

  These may be completely unrelated but I figured I'd ask anyhow...  Could there be a connection between the two?  Fish oil and dry mouth/thirst?

Mouth breather or not,this just started so that has nothing to do with it.  Quality?  They all claim to be high quality so I can't tell the difference.  I will say this is the "Spring Valley" brand if that makes a difference, liquid filled capsules.  And I take the last pill with my Simvastatin, having read it will help the statin.

Thanks for pointing out some possibilities though.

Your wrong about mouth breather! Spring Valley failed lab. tests buy Consumer Labs.

P.S. try another brand or try Omega 3 algae oil and try Source Naturals NKO Krill oil
