Many of the symptoms of dry mouth are related, such as hoarseness. A dry, scratchy throat can cause your voice to feel and sound hoarse. This hoarseness may be a temporary condition, which is often referred to as a "catch in the throat," or it may be a symptom that lasts for several hours or days. Coughing or clearing your throat may help. Drinking water can also relieve this symptom in many cases since it is the result of dryness. While hoarseness is not a medically serious condition, it can be very frustrating, especially for those who must often speak as part of their daily life.
