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.
