User Comments:


For Sjogren’s Syndrome “I was in the last trials for Evoxac about 20 years ago. I had serious issues with dry eyes and dental decay when I had to wait for it to be approved. I have been on it since with no side effects and a minimal use of supplemental eye drops until this year. It has allowed me to retain significant moisture production in my eyes, mouth and lungs.”

For Sjogren’s Syndrome “This medication is a lifesaver! I have experienced a couple of mild side effects (chills, mild stomach upset if I don’t take it with food) but nothing severe enough to make me stop taking it. It helps tremendously with dry mouth and starts working about 30 – 45 minutes after taking it. It feels like it only lasts about 4 hours, however, so you might need to take it multiple times per day.”

For Sjogren’s Syndrome “I also have taken Evoxac for years. I first asked my opthomologist to prescribe pilocarpine. He would not, telling me to see an ENT physcian for this, as he felt there were to many side effects for this type of drug. I did get a Rx for the pilocarpine and then switched to Evoxac. At first I could not perceive a benefit of this drug, but now I can tell when my dose (every eight hours) has worn off.Also, I do not think that I have suffered any side effects from this drug.”

For Sjogren’s Syndrome “While I was taking Evoxac I hadsevere body odor, and my genitals smelled like onion. I tried everything to clear it up, over several years and nothing helped. The day I stopped taking Evoxac, the condition cleared up immediately. For the last 10 days it has not returned. I’m grateful my new doctor refused to subscrjibe a refill for Evoxac when I requested it. She told me the side effect was fatigue and she asked me to try other ways to address my dry mouth. After I stopped taking it, I noticed the very next day, for the first time in years, my strange body odor was gone. I do not recommend this drug for anyone who cares about how they smell “down there.””
