Reviews for Cevimeline
For Sjogren's Syndrome: "Within hours after my first two doses I suddenly realized that I had moisture in mouth, on my tongue and in my upper throat. What a glorious feeling! I actually started crying I was so happy to feel normal again! I haven't seen or felt any side effects--just the joy of not having to endure the parched and sticky mouth, tongue and throat anymore. I'm actually making a special thank-you card for my doctor who came up with the idea! I couldn't be happier. It's funny how I took things for granted ---like a comfortable, moist mouth---until I lost it. And what an incredible feeling it is to have it back again! Feeling grateful..."

Evoxac (cevimeline) for Sjogren's Syndrome: "While I was taking Evoxac I had severe 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.""

For Sjogren's Syndrome: "It's a huge relief for dry mouth and seems to help dry eyes a bit. Drawback for me- it's very nauseating so I need to take another medicine to offset the nausea."

For Sjogren's Syndrome: "I love this medicine. Started working the same day that I started taking it- I have been on it for years. I am finding that the generic version is not as strong as the name brand. I was cavity free for years, but after I switched to generic I am having dental issues again. Also, the dry eye is coming back. "

Evoxac (cevimeline) for Sjogren's Syndrome: "I have had severe dry mouth now for about 2-3 years and told all my doctors who then told me to take Biotein and other mouth rinse. Never helped. Finally got Evoxac and it has really helped I no longer swallow food and fear that I will choke and something wont get stuck in my throat going down. My mouth went dry as a desert to wet, I sometimes drool, but I don't mind. I was miserable waking up every morning with a horrible taste and dental problems an so on. "

Evoxac (cevimeline) for Sjogren's Syndrome: "I was getting cavities along my gum line as well as a nasty taste in my mouth. When I started taking Evoxac everything got better. No more cavities, no more nasty taste. I can swallow my food now without smearing it with mayonaise or other sauces. It wears off at the same time every day so I know what time it is and reach for another Evoxac. Of all the meds I take, I would never want to give this one up. I feel awful without it as when I have surgeries and they won't let me have it at the hospital. As soon as I am out the door, I grab my Evoxac and get relief."

Evoxac (cevimeline) for Sjogren's Syndrome: "I just started to take Evoxac yesterday around lunch time. So I took 2 pills yesterday, and at night I cry these huge tears. So I know it's working. For the dry mouth, it takes one hour for it to work, it feel moist but not wet. At the end of the day, headache comes as a side effect. Overall it is good"

Evoxac (cevimeline) for Sjogren's Syndrome: "This saved my life. I am bipolar and take a dozen medicines, the dentist told me dry mouth like mine would cause permanent damage and tooth lose. I bugged and bugged doctors until they prescribed Evoxac. I went to my next dental check up and the dentist wanted the name of the drug. Sure sometimes I drool in my sleep but I think I will go to my grave with the choppers GOD gave me and I thank him every single day for the person who invented Evoxac."
