Everyone who uses their voice professionally knows that certain things like coffee, smoking, and air conditioning can make you lose your voice a lot faster. What it all boils down to is that a dry mouth is bad for your voice. Recently, I've been really struggling with this. I drink tons of water throughout the day, so that's not the problem. And it's not like it helps anyway.
Now, chewing gum all the time can't be good for you, even if it's sugar free. Too much chewing gum can cause stomach problems. And it only works if you actually chew it. Eating hard candy all the time doesn't seem like a good way to deal with a dry mouth, either.
I've found the perfect solution, though. What I do now is I put a medium sized plastic button in my mouth. I saw this in a movie once and it really works! I don't know why or how, but it works way better than chewing gum. It's also a lot cheaper and a lot cleaner. I can take it out for 5 minutes and then just put it back in. If you keep getting a dry mouth, give it shot
By the way, I started 40 mg today. I'll keep you guys posted
