Excessive saluvation

I wake up with mouth full of saliva. If I gulp down a lil bit by mistake I feel nausea. I need to spit all day long. It is very frustrating. Also when I'm out or busy the production decreases. I've been facing this problem since many years. What should I do? Is it neurological or any other cause? Please help

Hypersalivation, or increased saliva, can be caused by overproduction or decreased clearance of saliva. There are many medical conditions that can cause hypersalivation; therefore, it is a common symptom.

Treatment of hypersalivation should be directed toward the underlying cause. Some patients find relief with use of mouthwash and tooth brushing, which might have a drying effect..
