problem with swallowing

I have hard time swallowing so I build up saliva to the point of having to put my head over the sink.I was told to get a bed that I can raise up so I won't aspirate in the middle of the night I tried botox in the saliva gland and it helped for about 10 weeks I went back at twelve weeks had the shots. but they didn't work so now they want to raise the dosage ..anybody experience this issue

My husband has become an avid gum chewer to constantly keep swallowing. It’s an easy bandaid for now.
