Excess saliva.

681 Views 9 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  milandro
Since a year of two my sound has become more and more "spitty". I know now that this has to do with excess saliva due to Parkinson disease. The medicins I found (Glycopyrronium, Biperideen) to diminish the saliva production do have severe side effects so I doubt to take them. I do use Levodopa. Does anyone of you know a solution?

A spitty sound comes from moisture near the tip of the mouthpiece. A lower baffle or bigger tip opening can lessen or eliminate the spitty sound.
