I've been taking Evoxac for about 3 months and it helped my dry mouth so much when I first started it that I had to only take it twice a day rather than 3 times. But now I'm having dry eyes a lot and Evoxac is not helping them at all. It's not helping as much for my dry mouth as it was when I first started it.

Evoxac relieves dry mouth without side effects for me. Dry mouth is not 100 percent gone, but Evoxac helps enough to continue use.

Took the drug for dry mouth after a virus affected my sense of smell and left me with a dry mouth/burnt tongue feeling. The drug makes me very dizzy and shaky. I can't drive or function well. I am on a beta blocker for blood pressure. Going off evoxac after just over a week. Gives me tingly feeling in my mouth and does help produce more saliva, but side affects are not worth it for me.

This drug has been very effective for me in treating Sjogrens Syndrome. It does, however increase greatly my tinnitus.

I have been taking Evoxac for dry mouth due to Sjogren's syndrome for a couple of years. I started out taking it once or twice a day, but now take it 3 times daily, as the effect does not last long. I try to take it with food, because on an empty stomach it kicks in very quickly and powerfully--too much effect at once! It is only helpful for 2-4 hours after each dose, but better than nothing. I have not had significant side effects, just a little extra sweating. If they could come up with a timed-release dose or a skin patch, it would be nearly perfect for my needs.

I have been on Evoxac for a year and a half, it works well about 1/2 hour after I take it, but the effect only lasts about one hour. Also I think it has made my acne prblem worse, has anyone else noticed this side effect ?

I have Sjogren's and have for about 5 years..The Evoxac caused me to have a chronic cough for the last 2 years..they did chest x-ray to make sure there wasn't something else going on. I finially realized about 45 min after the med, I would start to cough. I know side effects are sinusitis and post nasal drip...actually as bad as I am with the dryness, I prefer to constantly drink over having to leave church, social events, etc because of the constant coughing. Anyone else have this? I went off the med, and, no longer have the problems..I don't think it was a great help with the dry mouth and eyes either...I was still a mess!!!

been using for 2 yrs. has helped some with dry mouth. may not ever be the same. my BIGGEST problem is extreamly,profuse sweating of the head. no matter if it's 90% or 20% I am sweating. my hair is soppying wet and i'm dripping from my face,It turns bright red. can't enjoy going any where because it happens for no reason. this goes on several times a day. i think (know) i would rather be dry than wet. Any thoughts or help welcomed
