Treatments and drugs

There's no one sure way to treat burning mouth syndrome, and solid research on the most effective methods is lacking. Treatment depends on your particular signs and symptoms, as well as any underlying conditions that may be causing your mouth pain. That's why it's important to try to pinpoint what's causing your burning mouth pain. Once any underlying causes are treated, your burning mouth syndrome symptoms should get better.

If a cause can't be found, treatment can be challenging. There's no known cure for primary burning mouth syndrome. You may need to try several treatment methods before finding one or a combination that is helpful in reducing your mouth pain. Treatment options may include:

* A lozenge-type form of the anticonvulsant medication clonazepam (Klonopin)
* Alpha-lipoic acid, a strong antioxidant produced naturally by the body
* Oral thrush medications
* Certain antidepressants
* B vitamins
* Cognitive behavioral therapy
* Special oral rinses or mouth washes
* Saliva replacement products
* Capsaicin, a pain reliever that comes from chili peppers

I wish I knew how they were going to treat this..
right now i have a special mouth wash..thats it.
