Treatment of Sjogren’s depend on the symptoms tof a particular patient , because this is a very variable disease . If you have only dryness of mouth or eyes, it can be treated with tear supplements or saliva stimulators symptomatically. You don’t need any immunosupressive medicines. But if you have arthritis, skin rash or others , then you need anti rheumatic medicines like hydroxychoroloquine, methotrexate, prednisolone or other drugs. Better to consult a rheumatologist who can monitor your symptoms and plan a suitable treatment algorithm for your disease.
