Salipen

Posted , 9 users are following.

Hi, Has anyone even tried the salipen. Apparently it's an appliance you put in your mouth and it creates electro stimulation to create saliva in the mouth. I noticed on another site that some people in Australia is using it with good results. It can only be purchased on line from Germany or Israel. Not available in US or Canada but it can be shipped for personal use. I'm looking into getting one but just wondering if anyone tried this appliance or know of someone who has?

    Hello Betty

    I also haven't heard of it but I think you would need to know that your glands are able to produce more saliva than they now do before buying something so expensive. It wouldn't work for me as my glands are pretty much defunct but I've had Sjogren's a very long time and you may be different. If they have a good returns policy it may be worth a try. Best wishes with it anyway.

    Hello Betty. I was offered the opportunity to go on a clinical trial in London, but bought a Salipen myself instead, in July this year, 2019. I constantly use chewing gum, sugar free sweets, pastilles and mints (xylimelts) to produce a comfortable flow of saliva. I used the Salipen consistently, 4/5 times a day for 4-5 minutes a time. It did make me produce saliva but I felt the results were not sustained when not using it. I am contemplating another trial vs selling it (the bit that goes in the mouth can be replaced for hygiene much cheaper than buying the whole device). i am happy to answer any questions based on my own experience.

    best wishes, Anne K
