    Has anyone else experienced dry mouth andn cough as MDS progressed?



    Yes, dry mouth and dry cough (at night). It’s from all the meds. I use Xylimelts and it helps tremendously. Got it on Amazon.

      For dry cough, I finally figured out that it was post nasal drip itching my throat. My doctor recommended that I switch taking citrizine (Zyrtec) from the morning to bedtime. Worked!

      Good Luck!

    Thank you! He just started Dacogen and really wasn’t on any meds before….but we plan to try allergy pill and doc suggested Prilosec too, so we will see!
