    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.

    My energy level drops to zero in less than 1 hour of taking evoxac, stay nauseous which causes me to over eat and the RX helps my sore mouth but the side effects over ride any benefits. I gained 10 lbs. before i realized i was eating to keep from throwing up.

    Comment:
    I have Sjogren's Syndrome that causes severe dry mouth. This medication is the only thing I have fround that helps. About an hour after I take it I notice the effects. I started with 3 pills a day and am now up to 4. It very effective for about the first 3 or 4 hours, but anyone with this condition knows that relief from dry mouth for that long is great! I don't know how I was able to ... Show Full Comment
