Default Man Alive! I CAN'T get enough water!

I posted a follow up about my abdominal cramps. This Bentyl was worked wonders but I'M SO BLASTED THIRSTY!

I've been on it a week now. I think I'll cut the dosage in half and see if they stay away and my thirst gets back into a normal range. (Normal for me is over 70 oz/day). This thirst is waking me at night. Between that and the constant runs to the bathroom, it's a wonder I get any sleep at all.

Anyone else ever had this problem?

Have you called your doctor about this?

No. The information with the med says it can cause dry mouth. They didn't lie. gulp gulp

Oh, that's different from being thirsty. Your salivary glands aren't working correctly. Try adding a few drops of plain lemon juice to your water- for a few days, it will fool your salivary glands into working overtime.

Thanks. I never put that together. I just know that I can't get enough water. What you said makes perfect sense. However, I hate lemon water. I may have to go out and get some sugar-free lemon drops.

Thanks again.
