    Is it in full sun? They like some shade and a moist soil. It's been dry for weeks so I would give it at least two cans of water and again twice a week until you see improvement.

    I agree with @Bijdezee ... honeysuckles need shady feet and lots of water. 
    Is it in a container?  very few honeysuckles are happy unless planted in the ground. They need a huge amount of deep root room.

    Agree with both of you. Very droughted.
    Our honeysuckle (40 years old) grows over an archway by the gate and is shaded by a magnolia tree. It is in full leaf and flowers.

    Agree also. It'll be struggling with the heat and lack of moisture. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
