Reviews for Evoxac
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 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 "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. "

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."

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"

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."
