Answer

See the list below:

  • In addition to the antibiotics, patients may be treated with any form of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications. Narcotics may be needed in severe cases, and increasing pain refractory to medications is often an indication for admission for further evaluation.

  • In addition, medications predisposing to xerostomia should be avoided where possible. These include antiparkinsonian, antiemetics, antinauseants, over-the-counter and prescription cold medications, antidepressants, antihypertensive agents, diuretics, anticholinergics, antianxiety agents, and decongestants.
