I have Sjogren 's syndrome which causes dry eye and dry mouth for many years! I also use Allergan's Refresh eye drops twice a day. Just read that Krill oil may help relieve dry eye symptom. Start taking it last week instead of fish oil!

Thanks . I have Sjogrens Syndrome too, unfortunately. Do you take any medication for Sjogren? Methotrexate or Azathioprine?
I use Systane liquid tears as needed for dry eye, PM ointment at night and have an RX for pataday. I have recently found that an eye mask at night really helps. Daily scrubbing of eye lids is helpful. For dry mouth, brush twice daily plus waterpik and swishing with water a few times a day helps. Dental visits 2 X year for cleaning and check on gums.
