RA and Sjogrens

I have been on methotrexate for a month now along with folic acid. So far no bad side effects. However the Sjogrens is driving me nuts. I just started Evoxac for the Sjogrens. Is anyone out there taking Evoxac if yes how long does it take to kick in. I feel myself experiencing some anxiety and depression.

Evoxac may take several months to get maximum benefit, If you think it may be causing side effects, some of my patients have found that Salagen, a similar medication, while possibly less effective, may be better tolerated.
