If mouth dryness bothers you or makes it hard for you to eat, try these tips:

  • Ask your doctor if you should use an artificial saliva product to moisten your mouth.

  • Drink plenty of liquids.

  • Suck on ice chips, popsicles, or sugarless hard candy. You can also chew sugarless gum.

  • Moisten dry foods with butter, margarine, gravy, sauces, or broth.

  • Dunk crisp, dry foods in mild liquids.

  • Use lip balm if your lips become dry.

  • Avoid food with a lot of condiments (chiles, salt, acidity).

  • If possible, see your dentist before you begin taking interferon to have your teeth cleaned and to take care of any problems such as cavities, abscesses, gum disease, or poorly fitting dentures.

  • Brush your teeth after every meal. Use a soft toothbrush and a gentle touch; brushing too hard can damage soft mouth tissues.

  • If your gums are too sensitive for even a soft toothbrush, use a cotton swab or gauze. Use a nonabrasive toothpaste or a paste of baking soda and water.

  • Rinse your toothbrush well after each use and store it in a dry place.
