    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!
