Xerostomia is frequently seen in menopausal women. The purpose of this study was to discuss the relation of xerostomia, female hormone and autonomic nervous function. There were statistical significant differences between state anxiety and female hormone, trait anxiety and female hormone. Only simplified menopausal index was improved significantly after treatment of xerostomia. Because autonomic nervous function and unstimulated saliva tend to be influenced by the environment, multiple measurements may be needed. In addition, the study in large number of subjects may be needed.
