Anyone have any experience with Salagen?  My doc rx'd it today for Sjogren's.  I've only seen Evoxac discussed here so I'm wondering what the difference in the two are.  I looked online and they basically say the same thing with the same side effects.  Anyone have any input on either of these?

I was not aware a second med existed since when I was put on evoxac it was the only one on the market of its kind.

I wasn't either redrose. I should have asked him, but of course I didn't think about it until I left.

I think there are some people here who have used Salogen, so hopefully they can tell you how it worked for them. For me, the Evoxac works great. I ran out for a few days and it was torture to have that severe dry mouth again that no amount of water or liquid could help. I don't want to be without it again. Like I said on another post, I get a little hot flash a little while after I take it, but it goes away.

I miss evoxac too. But it is a no-no in pregnancy. I really wish I could take it cause the back of my mouth and upper part of my throat swell a lot when they get too dry- which is about 2 hours after my last guzzle of fluids.
