Salagen (Pilocarpine) is a prescription medication used to treat dry mouth caused by Sjogren syndrome or dry mouth caused by radiotherapy in people with head and neck cancer. The active ingredient in Salagen is Pilocarpine. Pilocarpine belongs to the class of medicine called Saliva stimulants (cholinergic agonists). It works by stimulating specific nerves to increase the saliva you produce, making it easier and more comfortable to speak and swallow.

Side Effects and Precautions

The common side effects of Salagen are sweating, headache, flushing, dizziness, rhinitis, and urinary frequency.

Stop using Salagen and contact your doctor right away if you have any of the serious side effects such as:
• Bladder tightness;
• Changes in vision;
• Confusion;
• Difficulty breathing;
• Fast or slow heartbeat

Warnings and Interactions

Before you start using Salagen (Pilocarpine), you should inform your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to Pilocarpine, its ingredients, or any other allergies. It would be best to carefully follow the directions on your prescription label and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take Salagen precisely as directed by your doctor. It would help if you did not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor. Your doctor may start you on a low dose of Pilocarpine and adjust your dose depending on how well your symptoms are controlled and the side effects you experience. Be sure to tell your doctor how you feel during your Pilocarpine treatment. Pilocarpine will control your symptoms but will not cure your condition. Continue to take Pilocarpine even if you feel well. Do not stop taking Pilocarpine without talking to your doctor. Salagen may cause blurred vision, especially at night or in low light. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to see clearly. If Salagen makes you sweat heavily, drink plenty of water to avoid becoming dehydrated.

Before you start using Salagen, inform your doctor about your medical history, especially if you have:
• Chronic bronchitis or another type of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease;
• Eye problems such as asthma, acute iritis (uveitis; swelling and irritation inside the eye), glaucoma, or other breathing disorder;
• Gallbladder diseases such as gall stones;
• Kidney problems;
• Liver diseases;
• Mental illness;
• Taking heart or blood pressure medications

Tell your doctor about all the medications you use, including prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, herbal products, and vitamin supplements. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding. You should know that Pilocarpine may cause decreased fertility in men and women. Talk to your doctor before you take Pilocarpine if you or your partner want to become pregnant. There may be a drug interaction between Salagen and other drugs such as propranolol, metoprolol, amifampridine, amitriptyline, chlorpheniramine, atropine, tolterodine, etc.
