Water, water, and more water, here too. When I was in the hospital, from a car accident, I mentioned to my dr. that my mouth was dry all the time, and I felt like I had cotton mouth. She asked me how much water I was drinking and when I told her any where from 8 to 16 - 16 oz. glasses, she was alarmed. She told me that I was drinking way to much water and that's what was causing me to have dry and cotton mouth. She explained that I needed to incorporate more juice into my water drinking. You know what, it worked. The dry and cotton mouth went away. However, I'm still never without a bottle of water, as I never know, how long I'll be in one place, and I don't want to get thirsty.

I have water with me all the time too. I have even tried chewing sugar free gum because my mouth is dry.I hope loosing weight will bring my blood pressure back to normal so I can get off my medication. Good Luck
Hi, I was recently diagnosed with high BP a couple of weeks ago and my Dr. put me on diuretics and since then I've had a really hard time staying hydrated. I feel like I am drinking water as much as I can but it doesn't seem to help since it just goes straight through me (sorry if TMI) instead of making me feel hydrated. Does it take awhile for your body to get used to the medications? It's especially hard at work because I sweat a lot at work because I have an active job. I go back to the Dr. in a couple of weeks so I'll ask her then, but I just wanted to see if anyone had any insight. I just feel really crummy when I am dehydrated.
