    have you tried bonjela mouth ulcer treatments?

    Maybe it is a side effect of what you are taking but you will need a professional opinion. How about talking to a GP or pharmacist?

    I get this but only from time to time so I can't blame it on a particular medication.

    Bonjela heps but a much better one is Orabase. It is a tick protecive paste that sticks to the affected area.

    I got it from my GP and am not sure if you need a prescription for it. I find that after about four days there is great improvement.

      I have found over the years that several meds have caused dry mouth and cough.

      With Ramipiprill I was going round like a Zombie, tired, muzzy head and light headed. We were in London for a few days catching up on theatre shows and I kept dozing off even when in the front row at the loud Priscilla Queen of the Desert and The Jersey Boys.
