Comment:
I use Xylimelts lozenges for dry mouth. They work wonderfully well but I have developed a cough since using. The cough sometimes lasts half the night. I have been taking meds for the cough but don't like doing that. So, I am in a quandary as to whether to continue use or not.

Comment:
I have developed an adverse action from xylitol in mouthwashes, dry mouth treatments, e.g., Xylimints, etc. Use of products with xylitol make my mouth very sore resulting in blister-like adhesions on the edge of my tongue.

Comment:
Used for dry mouth. Worked well for that for about 2 months until I got a sore, inflamed mouth and swollen,dry lips. I quit taking it, things got worse and I went to an oral med. doc who gave me meds to clear things up. Since the Xylimelts worked so well, I tried them again just in case my mouth issue was a coincidence. Within two days, my mouth is sore again.

Comment:
Turns out I react to this very much as I do every other alternative sweetener I've tried. I don't get the migraine with this one but my throat closes, even with just the amount in a piece of gum (which is how I discovered the reaction)
