Our expert says:
A person normally produces 750ml to 1.5 litres of saliva per day. During the night (while sleeping) it should drop to zero. Consult your doctor for a full examination to see if there is any pathological reason for your excessive production of saliva at night.
There is medication that will decrease the production of saliva. Your doctor can prescribe this to you.
