I have found that eliminating caffeine and supplementing my AD with 1/4-1/2 mg Xanax at bedtime significantly reduces the jaw/neck tension. Also, after a year on Effexor XR, reducing the dose recently has reduced the muscular tension. At first I was scared about reducing the dosage but at the same time I went on a spiritual retreat and through prayer, searching my heart, confession, dealing with traumatic memories, abuse, etc. I feel better than I have in years. The retreat (which included many hours of counseling) gave the significant response that Toby has been suggesting could come from the use of EMDR.
Also, in the two months before the retreat I had received 3 treatments of massage therapy and I must say that it also helped but was temporary relief.
If the Klonopin worked before is there some reason that you are not using it now? Isn't it similar to Xanax? My Dr. has no problem with prn use of Xanax. Hope this helps.
