Question: Blood in spit and on sheets during sleep

 Zach Stein - Mon Apr 04, 2005 11:46 am

I have been waking up with small amounts of blood on my sheets and occasionally having to spit and blood being in the mucus. I'm also having small nose bleeds occasionally throughout the day but they don't last more than a minute at most. I recently started straterra, could it be that or is it probably allergies or what? Please reply, I'm really worried

User avatar Hi Zach Stein,
Have you had a recent dental exam? Gingivitis/peridontal disease may cause bleeding. Of my knowledge of this medication, these aren't the general side effects, although not impossible. I would first attribute the bloody saliva to peridontal problems. I would suggest an evaluation.
