Q: Is there a connection between Sjogren’s Syndrome and high BP?

A: Many medications used to treat high blood pressure are associated with the side effect of a dry mouth. Dry mouth is a key symptom associated with Sjogren’s Syndrome. However, true Sjorgren’s Syndrome is a disease of the immune system. Glands that produce moisture in the body are attacked by the body’s own immune system interfering with the production of salvia and tears. For more information on Sjogren’s Syndrome click here.
