Recently developed symptoms of top of tongue sticking to the roof of my mouth☹ and lips sticking together.
Meds. I'm taking: Riluzole; Baclofen; Amitriptyline; Levothyroxine; Zarelto; Cetirizine. Toothpaste: Baking soda; Colgate Whitening paste, mouthwash.

Is it a precursor of losing taste? Never expected this weirdness. Thanks much - B😷

Some of those are drying, and we are heading into drier weather. Muscle weakness can be a factor but you can still aim to "grease the wheel."

Have you tried Biotene or another spray? They make a toothpaste also. A sugar-free cough drop? And hydration never hurts.

I have not experienced this except for a little after a sweet sugary treat.
