Abstract

We report here 2 cases of patients with Sjögren’s syndrome with dry mouth that were successfully treated with cevimeline hydrochloride. The first case was diagnosed as Sjogren’s syndrome at our clinic, and the saliva secretion increased by more than three-fold following oral cevemeline hydrochloride. The second case was diagnosed at another hospital, and the saliva secretion was increased by more than two-fold by the medication.
