    Goodmorning, do you salivate excessively? There is really no medical drug necessary to manage that but you need to reduce the speed at with you talk, whenever you are talking and you realise you have more saliva in your mouth you should swallow and also ensure you drink water alot. Take care

    well the truth is I drink lot of water, and I also don't talk fast cos naturally am not a fast speaker or talker whichever is appropriate, but no matter how slow I decided to talk the amount of saliva I produce is just too much in access. I was never like this growing up as a boy. until after my pre-degree I begin to notice that I splash saliva on people I talk to. which is seriously embarrassing. I believe there should be a solution.

    The other option is to see a doctor to examine you and carry out some investigations to find out if you have any medical condition that can be responsible for excessive salivation. Pellagra gastroesophageal reflux disease, oral diseases, tonsillitis, liver disease, facial nerve palsy are some of the possible causes. So after proper evaluation if you will be needing any drugs, you can get a written prescription from a doctor. Take care

    Also I have to say that sometimes in 2002 I happen to separate two friends fighting and in the process of doing that one of them unintentionally smashed plank against my face and it affected my mouth and my teeth was affected as well. some broken and others were cracked and also since about that time I do have occasional gum problem where by the gum will just swell up and later poss begin to come out. then after the poss little blood comes out too and this happens often like 4times a year since that time and before the incident of that fight I try to separate I talk normally and don't splash saliva on people. so I just remembered Now and I feel maybe it could help get me better response from you.

    The gum infection can be causing the excessive salivation. You should see a dentist because you may need to have the broken and cracked teeth extracted. This should help resolve the issue
