I've been on this drug before. It does increase saliva flow; however, the down side is they are expensive pills and you have to take 2 or 3 per day. I found that if I took more than 1 per day, I would get sick to my stomach. They also make you sweat profusely after taking the pill for about the first couple of hours after taking. But again, they did help increase saliva production.
