Evoxac and Dry Eyes

Question

Can Evoxac help cure dry eyes? I have severe dry eyes and blephorospasms. I read that Evoxac can help cure dry eyes. Is this true?

Answer

Evoxac (cevimeline) is FDA approved for treatment of dry mouth only. There is some anecdotal data that it may relieve symptoms of chronic dry eyes. But it is not usually prescribed for treatment of dry eyes.
