Customer Question


Can you help with some medical advise.

Ive been getting for the last month or so a very dry mouth quite noticeable at times.

I also seem to feel sick quite a lot of the time but not actually sick.

I keep getting mouth ulcers and sores too which last a few days disappear then new ones appear days later.

Any ideas whats going on?

Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

Thanks for this question

Do you take any meds?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I have been taking bupropion for some time and also take fexofenodine when the hay fever is bad, never had these problems before.

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 3 years ago.
The mouth ulcers are from the dry mouth. you need saliva to protect it from ulcers

The dry mouth is most certainly caused by your medicine

Why it started now I'm not sure

I would try getting off one of them because they both can cause it

fexofenadine is easy to stop. bupropion should only be stopped under doctor supervision
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Ok well i only started fexofenadine again about a week ago and this was going on before so could point to bupropion.


Would that explain the sickness too?

Yes, it could be and that would explain the sickness too
