                I will certainly ask  about this drug my mom is having a hard time with the mucus even prior to radiation because the cancer was blocking her saliva glands. Rinsing with salt and baking soda does nothing ,she says the 3 mix solution burns her moth her lips are bleeding a little every day. and at 78 its hard to cough the mucus out THANK YOU I will try to get ASAP
