    I started a cortisol testing this morning. I really have dry mouth in the morning so after 45 minutes I have very little saliva and a lot of foam.

    I read (which I can't find now) that I can do it the same time tomorrow to add to what I have, as long as I do it at the same time.

    I also know I can restart but I may run into the same issues of dry mouth.

    I'm doing 4 a day and if I make a mistake I can rinse the tubes and restart but I'd like to just get this done today.

    Thanks Please tag me. I'm brainless due to time change.

    You need to be really hydrated.

    Sleep meds and allergy stuff gave me cotton mouth. I drank a lot yesterday

    I just need to confirm I can add new saliva tomorrow. I wish I could remember where I read that. Shoot
