Sjorgens Syndrome

I am trying to find out if Evoxac is available up here in canada. If not what other drugs can be taken for sjorgens besides pilocarpine. It is expensive and i am trying to find a cheaper drug for my mom to take as she has to pay for pilocarpine and it will be over 500 for one month. ## dry mouth causes (dehydration, diabetes, Sjogren's syndrome, medications for allergies and anxiety), symptoms ## Write the company that makes the prescription. Most have a plan that will ship you the meds for free. Or go to vocational rehab usually at the unemployment office and they should have all the forms and be able to help you with any and all medication.

My new internist is against continued use of Evoxac!

My new internist wants me to discontinue use of evoxac to control my very dry mouth/esophagus/etc. She says that it has a negative effect on my sympathetic nervous system. Could someone explain (in layman's terms) exactly how it could be detrimental, what specifically happens when it is, and how does it present (what will I notice happening to me)? ## Hello, Renee! How are you? I haven't been able to find anything on that, but your doctor may have received some new information that isn't available elsewhere, yet. What has she suggested that you use instead? ## She recommended nothing to take it's place. I did try to stop, but my mouth and esophagus were so dry, I couldn't continue without it. I guess I'll just have to ask her to explain it all to me, but she is n...
