Have taken for more than 6 years. Only could take 1 pill per day because of stomach issues. Worked really well until last few months. I am having severe leg cramps at night and plan to discontinue use.

I've been on this medication for over 4 years and have had very good results. My only complaints are the hot flashes after taking it and that I have to take it 3 times a day as it's not a long-lasting drug. Without it, I can barely talk because of the dryness.

I had to start this drug because my dr. would not be willing to change my HTN meds.If it wasn't for this med I would have taken myself off my meds because of the unbearable side effect of dry mouth.

I am modestly hopeful about this drug. I've been taking it for a week, and find that it does improve my severe dry mouth. I started taking it three times a day, but found that it causes insomnia and constipation, and am backing down to twice a day to see if it's still somewhat effective. It does peak about and hour after you take it, and the saliva that does get produced is very watery, not the normal, more viscous saliva that a normal person produces. I have read that, over time, Evoxac will help build up the mucins (the stuff that makes saliva a little gooier) which are also protective of the teeth. I don't think I will ever have a pre-Sjogren's level of moisture, but the best effect so far has been an improvement of my chronic and painful gastritis, caused by the lack of saliva (saliva neutralizes stomach acid),so for me that alone makes it worth it. No doctor I have ever seen understood this connection; it took reading an academic site on the internet after the fact to learn why it has improved the gastritis.

I have been onthis drug for about 6yrs now, after being dianosed with Sjorgren's Syndrome, it has been very difficut with this diease as I cannot get doctors where I live to understand this SS. I have arthritis and a variety of other skin problems no one knows if this SS is the bbasic cause of all of my pain, also take Enbrel 1xaweek. But thank goodness my 1st rhemy Dr. put me on Evoxac, still educating people about this drug. Thanks, C. Pierson Stanwood, MI 49346

Radiation for tonsil cancer resulted in xerostomia. I found Evoxac preferable to Salagen. It is more effective, with less side effects.

Have just started this med. after 4 years of dry mouth and having 7 teeth pulled because of them falling apart I'm willing to try anything to help. My remaining teeth are mostly chipped and have to come out, I had a blood inf. 4 years ago which threw the Sjogrens into overdrive. I also lost 70 lbs. and half my hair. My sinuses are constantly dry, and mostly destroyed after black mold caused a super inf. which had to be treated by anfoterrible. So hopefully before I have anymore horrible problems this medicine helps, being able to eat without having to coat food with sauce or drink more than a gallon and a half of water everyday. Or wake up with my tounge stuck to the roof of my mouth and so sore I can't stand it.
