pilocarpine and fatigue

Posted , 1 user is following.

Hi all. Hope this finds you well. Sorry to be blasting this forum with so many posts. Seems i know so little about what is going on. Its a bit scary and overwhelming. What makes it a bit weirder is that i did not get the Sjögrens diagnosis from either there A&B blood test and the lip biopsy. But im still left with very dry mouth. Burning nasal passages etc. Also noticed my skin is getting a bit flakey near my eyebrow.

I had a question about Pilocarpine- Salagen. Im taking 5mg x 4 per day. On my 3rd week. Cant say i have felt anything yet. But has anyone experienced fatigue on this stuff? I did not have this kind of fatigue thats for sure before i started taking this stuff. I think it is listed as a side effect. If you had fatigue, did it ever pass? So is it something you get used to? Oh boy if im this tired on this stuff then I don't know.

My leg muscles and arm muscles also very tired. Hard to say if thats from the pilocarpine or then just unconditioning, fibromyalgia stuff. Love to hear your experiences. Thank you!
