I have talked about this before but lately my husband has been drooling more and more.
Is there any kind of medication he could take that would not interfere with A Fib (irregular heart beat).
He has botox for his eye problem so maybe they would give him something for the drooling. We also see his family doctor soon so maybe he can help.
The last 2 nights he has gotten up in the night because it was coming out excessively
I gave him a towel to put under his chin to help. I know someone mentioned a bib but he won't wear that.
Do you think drinking more water would help at all as he doesn't seem to drink much unless I remind him .

Lynnie, you might want to ask his neurologist about a very low dose of Artaine before bed time. I have no idea what he is on for medication, the neurologist will know if he can take it and if there would be interactions with his other meds. It's an older medication that is used at times to help with drooling. Hope this helps. Take care, best of luck and hang in there

Lynnie,
My husband had had botox shots twice now and it has really cut down on the drooling. It is rather amazing.
