ABSTRACT:
Xerostomia refers to a subjective sensation of a dry mouth , its frequently, but not always associated with salivary gland hypofunctions. Xerostomia is a common problem that has reported in 25% of older adults. In the past, complaints of dry mouth in older patient was ascribed to the predictable result of aging. However, it is now generally accepted that any reductions in salivary functions associated with age are modest and probably are not associated with any significant reductions in salivary functions. Instead, xerostomia in older asults is more likely to be the result of other factors, especially medications. More than 500 drugs have been reported to produce xerostomia as side effect. This review brief discuss about the antihypertensive drugs causing xerostomia.
