Hi Anon

Thanks for your post.

We need a little more info from you - do you mean once the evening comes around or when you are sleeping?

Do you drool in your sleep - is that what you mean?

Lots of people drool (excessive saliva) in their sleep. Often it's because they sleep on their sides rather than their backs.

Some people drool to to having conditions like cerebral palsy or because they are on certain medications. If you're on medications, check to see if excessive saliva is a side effect with any of them.

Other reasons include allergies and ear, nose and throat issues like sinus infections or rhinitis.

I hope this helps!
