A lillte dab at night after I brush my teeth lasts all night. It is quite expensive, so I normally use less that advertised. I found that the smaller amount works just fine. It took a little getting use to. Then it was like an old friend. Told my dentist this worked best, and lasted all night. Would recommend it to anyone who has dry mouth from meds.

I have used this gel day and night for over 10 years and now they have ruined it. It is NOT a gel anymore - it is now runny, tastes bad, and is also sweetened with sorbitol and xylitol (originally only contained xylitol). I do not know what I am going to do now that Biotene has made this USELESS to help with my dry mouth. Over the years I have tried many different brands and none were as effective as the ORIGINAL Biotene Dry Mouth Gel. I am now looking for something to replace this terrible product. I don't know why companies change good products - I suppose this change will make a bigger profit IF they do not lose all their customers. I have not even mentioned that it now also contains Propylparaben (a not so good for you preservative). I have not looked up all the new ingredients to see where they come from. Here is what is in the "new improved pH balance" Biotene Oral Balance Dry Mouth Gel: Glycerine, Water, Sorbitol, Xylitol, Carbomer, Hydroxyethyl Cellulose, Sodium Hydroxide, Propylparaben. The ingredients are VERY different, it is not a minor change. I wish they still offered the ORIGINAL. I can only hope I can find something from another company that will help my dry mouth.

            I have dry mouth due to radiation treatment. I have used this product for about 5 years, along with other Biotene products. Being a gel, it lasts longer than liquids, which is why I use it during the night. I would recommend it highly.

              I have very dry mouth due to medications. Biotrust Gel helps my mouth feel better instantly and I sleep much better through the night. We also used it for my brother and mother when they were in the hospital and needed moisture in their mouth.
