Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Evoxac is a brand name of drug Cevimeline. It does not contain a sugar component. There is no drug interactions exist between Evoxac and Tizanidine. You can combine both the drugs without any concerns.

You can take Lozenges available over the counter for dry mouth.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

tizanidine oral and citalopram oral....I have taken citalopram for several years and was given Tizanidine when I reached 65 because they would no longer prescribe Flexeril. I have Fibromyalgia and Osteo arithtis I take the Citalipram in the am and Tizanidine at bed time with Tylenol to help me sleep. Does the fact I am not taking them together lower the negitive impact? Sorry today is a bad pain day and my fingers are not spelling is usually better

Hello, I just started taking Evoxac (cevimeline hydrochloride) and my blood pressure has escalated considerably. I take the following medicines: Diovan (160 mg); Lipitor (10mg); Coreg (40 mg); can any of these be in conflict with the Evoxac? My blood pressure is hovering around 170/90. Thank you.
