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.
