Salagen works, most of the time. Particular drugs, like Adderall, may require more of a fight in popping them- but generally 3-4 times a day could work. GET SALAGEN, or it's newer competitor, I forgot the name. TAKE IT! It's expensive, my insurance charged me $25 for it, which it never did before- and I get many pills!
Just remember to make sure you brush your tongue, and only use biotene toothpaste and a flouride rinse.. and biotene mouthwash.
Get Colgate Flouride Rinse from your pharmacy. Yes, it's expensive, but my dentist said I really need it, or my teeth will rot. It's like $12, for a big bottle. Rinse once every other night.
And the Harvard Medical Journal DISPROVED the tongue scraper theory. It is proven NO MORE EFFECTIVE than a toothbrush on your tongue. And this is coming from the foremost expert on bad breath. Eww. Anyway, good excuse now not to have just an embarassing tool in your bathroom! =)
