I had never heard of this - amazing! (This is my
first time on psycho-babble... I'm impressed!)

I've been taking prozac for 10 years now, and I
do have a problem with jaw clenching from time
to time - mainly stress induced.

I HIGHLY reccomend massage therapy for relief.
Actually, I highly recommend it even if you
don't have such pains, as it is known to be a
mood enhancer.

I see my therapist every 7-10 days for the last
year and I'm a whole new person. Even had my
dosage cut recently. I'm sure this is part of it.

Good luck!
